Roma 1986 - No.9 Pruzzo.


A prolific goalscorer, Roberto Pruzzo was known as a strong and hardworking centre-forward throughout his career. With good technique, especially excellent heading ability, Pruzzo was one of the best Italian strikers of his generation and regarded as one of Roma's greatest players.

Pruzzo moved to Roma in 1979, for a then record sum of 3 billions liras, winning one Scudetto during the 1982–83 season, and four Italian Cups in 1980-81-83-86. Pruzzo's purple patch coincided with Roma's best ever era and were unlucky not to have a European cup to show for it - although Pruzzo scored the equaliser in the 1984 European Cup Final, when Roma, despite playing at home, were beaten on penalties by Liverpool.

On a personal level, Pruzzo would bag the Serie A top-scorer gong on three occasions, an achievement only eight people have ever managed.



Pruzzo went on to become one of the most celebrated players ever to don the Giallorossi shirt. On his nomination for the AS Roma Hall of Fame in 2012, Pruzzo wrote: “When we were on the pitch, we felt like we were loved. I still think that was the best-loved Roma side of all time.”
He ended his career in 1989 after a season for Fiorentina.
