Serie A teams
Italian football is an important part of world football, regardless of its current position. Italy gave this game so much that it would be extremely unfair to find Calcho on the sidelines. Fortunately, many factors converge to the fact that the return of football in the Apennines to the previous level is not far off.
National coloring of Serie A
Not every owner is ready to retire so easily. For these people, everything connected with their clubs has become the meaning of life. Is it possible to imagine that the President of “Genoa” Enrico Preziosi so simply transfers the case and stops buying and selling football players by the hundreds? In which parallel universe does Napoli belong not to the odious film producer Aurelio de Laurentis, who is ready to invest all his fortune in his favorite club, to swear endlessly with the football federation and amuse honest people with impressive antics? How much would Calcho lose without such colorful characters as Lazio President Claudio Lotito, who is suing his own players because of their unwillingness to sign a new contract, or the owner of Palermo, Maurizio Dzamparini, twice able to hire and fire the same a coach? Football is a business that does not generate income for them and is littered with a rake, which they are attacking with great pleasure. The development of Calcho for them is not an end in itself but an inevitable consequence of their actions. Among the teams of Serie A can be distinguished such outstanding teams as genoa, Inter Milan, Lazio (or SS Lazio for many of fans), Cagliari. Teams Roma, Empoli and Atalanta occupy a special place on the world stage: the leaders of other clubs also appreciate the players of these teams, many of whom they want to buy.
Teams’ history: Juventus
The history of the Turin super club (such as AS Roma) on the one hand speaks of the success of the “old signora”, but on the other side of the scale – numerous European failures, expulsion to the second division. With all this, “Juventus” was, is and will be a great Italian club, a real measure of “Calcio” for many decades to come. It is impossible to lose glory in one or two years, because it was acquired not twenty or even thirty years, but a whole century! One of the oldest clubs in Italy was formed by the Lyceum students of the institution Massimo D Adzello on one fine day on the simplest Turin bench. Club colors were not always white-black vertical stripes. The pink and black colors in the early years were the signature distinction. At the beginning of the century, the Turin representatives noticed that “Notts County” from England was performing in a nice and, most importantly, memorable form. Since then, “Juventus” has moved to the “strip” with traditional colors.
From 1997 to 2003, Juventus FC turned out to be the losing side in the Champions League finals three times. Dortmund “Borussia”, Madrid “Real” and its own “Milan” became much happier than the Turints. On the domestic scene, after a slight decline, Juventus once again climbed to the top, and several star French people appeared at once – Zinedine Zidane and Didier Deschamps. Thierry Henry, who was able to realize his plans in Arsenal, did not work out in Turin. But the other young striker of the French team David Trezeguet became an “icon” for all the tiffozi of the “old lady sign”. Fabio Capello restored the victorious character of Juve, but then thunder struck. The case of “Calciopoli” still remains covered with darkness, although all those who should have been punished have practically left theirs. In the case of contractual matches, not everything was as smooth and clean as they wanted to see in another northern city. It is not clear why such a serious punishment was given to one (“Juventus”), while others managed to get off with a minimum fine. Turin fans, speaking of the famous scandal, nod in the first place to Milan “Inter”, who, with the fall of the “old lady”, climbed the royal throne in Italy. In any case, the mission of ill-wishers “Juve” was completed: the team actually began life from scratch. Returning to the summits is not as fast as all zebra fans would like, but none of them have any doubt that sooner or later Juventus will again be the first not only in Italy, but also in Europe.
The Milanese won their first championship in 1901. The nickname “devils” was coined for a reason. Red in the gamut of “Milan” symbolizes the devil, and black – a sign of danger, animal fear for rivals. In 1908, due to the ban on foreign players, there was a famous split in club history. What kind of enemy did the Rossoneri have made?
For a long time, the Rossoneri remained a grandee exclusively on its territory, that is, inside Italy. By the time Milan won its first continental gold in the Champions Cup 1962-1963, beating the Portuguese Benfica and Rossoneri in the final, they became champions of the country eight times. In the history of the team there were several periods when the bet was placed on players from certain regions. The Scandinavian direction of the 1950s was replaced by the Dutch after thirty years. Fatal was the purchase of “Milan” Silvio Berlusconi, who quickly began to invest in the team a lot of money. With the Dutch direction in Milan, they were not mistaken, and under the direction of Arrigo Sacchi almost every member of the team shone in his own way. “Milan” in those years was truly unstoppable, winning all the cups and trophies, which were aimed. In the late 80s and early 90s, “Milan” had no equal in world football. In this glorious period, the Italians became the strongest three times in Europe. In the first finals of the Champions Cup, Milan defeated (4-0) Steaua from Bucharest. Two Dutchmen, Ruud Gullit and Marco Van Basten recorded at their own expense. The latter, moreover, became the top scorer of the tournament with ten goals. After one year, another Dutch legionnaire, Frank Rijkaard, outplayed Benfica alone. In the 1993–1994 season, Milan appeared in a renewed line-up after losing the Champions Cup final against the French Marseille. The generation of Van Basten began to decline, and the younger positions of the younger Dejan Savichevich, Marcel Desailly, who distinguished themselves in the final besides Massaro, moved to the first positions. The team was already led by Don Fabio Capello, who left an equally bright trace of himself than Arrigo Sacchi.
In 1996, for the first and last time, everyone saw the weeping Capello: the great coach was saying goodbye to San Siro and moved to the Santiago Bernabéu, leaving his teammates to work together. In 1997, Don Fabio will return to Milan for a short time, when he realizes that without him, the club is very, very bad. The next coaching milestone was Carlo Ancelotti, who was called “forever second” before “Milan”. Under Ancelotti the Milanese were only on the sidelines in 2005 alone. With the departure of Paolo Maldini from football, the transition to Real Madrid Madrid Ricardo Izexon Kaka, Milan began a new era.
In their amazing and long history, the Crusaders, who received this nickname because of their first form – white T-shirts with a black cross, experienced dizzying ups and painful falls.
The team was originally named after the brilliant composer Giuseppe Verdi, who was born in Parma. Dzhaloblu did not grab stars from the sky and practically did not participate in the raffle of the highest Italian division. In 1986, Arrigo Sacchi was appointed as the coach of Parma, who made the Crusaders a strong middle peasant of the B. Series. And in 1989, Nevio Scala, who was destined to become the idol of Parma’s fans, went to the coaching bridge. On May 27, 1990, defeating Regan with the score 2: 0, Djaloblu won a ticket to Serie A! At the same time, the food giant Parmalat became interested in the club, its power and headquarters were located in Parma. The Tanzi family began pumping Dukali with billions of lire, and the result was not long in coming. The 6th place for a newcomer of the league, who spent most of his history in Serie C, made many experts wonder. In the 90s, Parma held a successful hunt for prestigious trophies: two UEFA Cups, UEFA Cup Cups, UEFA Super Cup, three Italian Cups and Italian Super Cup. The latest trophy was the 2001/2012 Italian Cup, in which the hated Juventus was defeated.
Since then, Parma has been going through difficult times because of the bankruptcy of Parmalat, which has turned into huge debts for the club. The priority goal for Djaloblu was not to participate in European competitions, but to preserve registration in the elite Italian division. For several years, the team successfully achieved its goal, until in the 2007/2008 season due to a leapfrog with coaches, Parma flew out to Serie B. Fortunately, the team was headed by talented mentor Francesco Gvidolin, who not only returned the Crusaders to Serie A from the first attempt, but next year immediately achieved the eighth position, simultaneously beating Milan and Juventus. But the main event of the 2009/2010 season was the return to Tardini of the legend of Parma Hernan Crespo, who holds the club’s record for scored goals. The season 2010/2011 brought fans both positive and negative emotions – in Turin with a score of 4: 1 was a bit to Juve, but at the finish of the tournament Bari unexpectedly got the best of Tardini. In the end, only the arrival of a new mentor Franco Colomba saved the Crusaders from relegation.
Parma currently occupies the 12th position, and everything is moving towards the fact that Jaloblu will retain his place in Serie A. However, the Crusaders fans still believe in higher goals. Let the 98th anniversary bring Parma good luck and joy to the fans. Forza Parma!
Football club “Napoli” was founded in 1926. He represents Naples in Serie A. The heyday of the team was in the eighties of the last century – it was then that the club decided to invite the legendary Maradona (Diego Maradona), paying a fabulous sum of five million pounds. In the same period Careca appeared on the field along with Maradona. Last season G. Higuíin played for Napoli (Gonzalo Higuaín), who fantasticly scored thirty-six goals and nearly won the Golden Boots. The idol of modern fans is Slovak Marek Hamshik. (Marek Hamšík).
The story of the ascent of Olympus sports coach Napoli, the recognized tactic of Maurizio Sarri, is truly unique. He began his career only at the age of 31 in the 7th Italian division, and for a long time coaching footballers, he simultaneously held the position of an employee in a bank. Only fifteen years later, he made his debut in Serie B. Only when he was fifty-three years old did he start working with elite footballers. It is thanks to Maurizio Sarri that the club entered the Champions League twice in a row and the team began to be called a “machine”, in which the aesthetics of the game and the methodical effective achievement of the goal are skillfully combined. Against such a game is very difficult to defend any opponent.
Surrey works with his team on the basics of his football, training athletes to control the ball and perform short passes. Last season, the team became the leader of the Championship in both these points – both in accuracy of transmission and in ball control.
Today, Napoli has the top five great players of the attack, which consists of scorer Arkadiusz Milik, wingers Lorenzo Insigne and Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Calejona (José María Callejón), as well as playmaker Marek Hameshika (Iere María Callejón), as well as playmaker Marek Hameshika (Iere María Callejón), as well as Marek Hameshika’s playmaker Marek Hameshika (are); (Dries Mertens). At the same time how perfect their game would not be, one of these players remains in the reserve. So, in the first game of the championship, scorer Milik was unable to come on as a substitute, and in the next one on the bench was Mertens (Dries Mertens). Napoli’s defense is not perfect – the thirty-two-year-old player Albiol (Raúl Albiol), known for his numerous mistakes and the goalkeeper of the Rhine (José Manuel Reina), who extended the contract against the background of a not very successful season. Sarry trains the team to defend by controlling the ball, but each tactical ploy has its limits. Surry’s backup players are Giacherini (Emanuele Giaccherini), who performed brilliantly at Euro 2016 for Italy and Marko Rog (Marko Rog) is a former Croatian player who has already announced himself this season.
In the previous championship, the strongest player dropped out of the game – Milik (Arkadiusz Milik), who injured the cruciate ligaments, and after this break, he rehabilitated for quite a long time. However, even though this player did not have the opportunity to enter the field for most of the season, the team still managed to show the highest results in the championship – the goal-and-pass statistics were beyond praise! In Hamshik this indicator was 12/10, in Insigne (Lorenzo Insigne) – 18/9, in Kalehon (José María Callejón) – 14/12, and in
Mertens (Dries Mertens) – 28/9!
One of the most significant events occurred in Naples in 1984: the great Diego Maradona was granted SSC Napoli. From the very first matches, he simply fell in love with all the fans who filled the football stadiums to the full, becoming the most popular Neapolitan. As for playing qualities, the most expensive player of that time, bought for 12 million dollars, began to actively work out the money invested in his purchase. A new team began to line up around the brilliant Argentine. Successes were not long in coming: in 1987, the Neapolitans for the first time became the owners of the “gold” of Serie A, and also won the Italian Cup.
In 1989, Napoli, led by Maradona, replayed the German Stuttgart in the UEFA Cup final. Moreover, together with Diego Armando, the talented Gianfranco Zola is being acquired – and Napoli is no longer unstoppable. In 1990, the second Scudetto fell into the hands of Napoli. A year later, the piggy bank of awards is complemented by the Italian Super Cup. But it also became the last trophy in the history of “Napoli”. Maradona began to abuse alcohol and drugs, because of which the relationship with the fans and the club heightened immediately. The fifteen-month disqualification of the Argentine due to the use of cocaine ended his era in Napoli. It was, in fact, the beginning of the end. In 1998, “Napoli” flies out of the elite of Italian football. Huge debts are hanging over the club.
In August 2004, the club was declared bankrupt and “Napoli” sank into oblivion. But, blessing, there was a man who did not allow a team with a long history to disappear without a trace. Film producer Aurelio De Laurentis founded a new club called “Napoli Soccer”, and he was immediately included in the number of participants in the C1 Series. A year later, the Neapolitans managed to ascend to Serie B. In May 2006, De Laurentis fully redeemed the rights to the emblem and name, and, as a representative of Serie A, “Napoli” was completely revived. The success of “Napoli” in the new history is mainly associated with the name of the head coach Walter Mudzarri, who managed to bring the team to third place in Italy and rally the team, which included stars such as Marek Hamshik, Esequiel Lavessi and Edinson Cavani.
The history of the football club Bologna
Bologna FC officially originated on Sunday, October 3, 1909 near the Rontsani Beer on Spaderie Street. Initially, this club had a goal “for sports in the open air.” And all this was called “The Tourist Circle of Bologna”, headed by Sandoni. The next day, Carlino took over the management, and Luis Rauc, a dentist from Switzerland, was appointed president, and Giuseppe Della Valle, secretary of Penalla, captain Arrigo Gradi, became deputy. However, the very initiative to create the club belongs to the boy who arrived in Bologna only a year ago, Emilio Arnstein. He came to the city and was looking for young people who have a passion for football. Emilio said that in the d’Armi ai Prati di Caprara square, the boys are playing football, mostly students. The residents called them “crazy people who run for the ball.” Here Arnstein wrote to the team of Gradi brothers, as well as Martelli, Puntoni, Nanni, Rauk and several students of the Spanish institute – Rivas and Antonio Bernabeu (brother of the legendary President of Real Madrid – Santiago). Grady came to workouts in a plaid red and blue t-shirt by the Swiss company Shoenberg di Rossbach, in which he studied. And soon all the team members began to wear these colors. In the winter of 1910, the Bologna Football Club became an independent society, leaving the tourist circle. T-shirts instead of squares now feature vertical stripes, but all the same colors — red and blue. At the general meeting, a new president was elected – he became Professor Borgesani. Deputy Emilio Arnstein, Coach Rauk.
History of Inter
On March 9, 1908, 43 members of the Milan Cricket and Football Club disagreed with the policies of its leadership, which was driven by the authorities and threw out of the team of all the legionnaires, create their own club and call it Internationale. It was open to all, regardless of nationality. So FC Internazionale appeared. It may seem that Inter was founded as a team for foreigners, but it is not. Among the founders of the club were a lot of Italians, fundamentally left Milan.
1920. Inter won the second championship exactly ten years later after the restoration of the club’s sporting activities which the First World War interrupted at that time. The final match of the season1919 / 20 was held in Bologna, where they met “Inter” and “Livorno”, “black – blue” won with a score of 3: 2. In 1955, the presidency is held by businessman Angello Moratti, who immediately surprises everyone with an invitation from Giuseppe Meazza to the coaching bridge, which ultimately didn’t inspire anything good, the team takes fifth place, and next season it takes 11th place. In general, if we evaluate the beginning of the Moratti rule, then you can’t call it successful, “Inter” didn’t come close to the first place and was clearly in a crisis.
1960. Everything changed when, in 1960, Argentine coach Elenio Herrera was called to the team. The heyday of Neradzurri and the loudest victories are associated precisely with the name of this South American, who would later be called “magician”, and the period from 1962 to 1966 Eroy “La Grande Inter”. However, Allenatore took time to get his views on football took root in the team, and tactical ideas began to work, for example, the rule of arrival at the base was introduced a few days before the game. Herrera was the very coach who invented “Catenaccio” – tactics that went down in football history as one of the most effective in terms of defensive football, using lightning counterattacks. It was the Argentinian who introduced the role of libero and a flank attacking midfielder into football.
1962/63. After the hard work of the coach, for two seasons, “Inter” begins to gain momentum. And in the season 1962/63 gets the long-awaited championship, the first era of “La Grande Inter”. Here you need to dwell on Herrera’s transfer activity, because after his arrival, the coach immediately begins to change the team, gets rid of veterans Skoglund, Angelillo, Firmani and others, instead acquiring promising and young Suarez (future fantasist of the Great Inter), Corso,
The high-speed forward came to the team, Brazilian Zhair, who immediately began to score important goals for the team, goalkeeper Buffon, who came to be an accomplished footballer (31 years) of a high level. And, of course, they stand alone in the champion team: one of the best defenders in the club’s entire history – Jancinto Faketti (thanks to high growth and clean play on the field, was nicknamed “Good Giant”, also famous for his bombing qualities) and Alessandro Mazzola Jr. (one of top scorer in the entire history, in his first two seasons becomes the top scorer of the championship).
History and achievements of FC Fiorentina
Fiorentina is Italian football club based in Florence. This is the art of the game at all times, even when the club swims in the muddy waters of the second division. Florence has developed a strong sense of local patriotism, which is inherent to its fans. The club has its own style, its own face. For example, in 1940, after the first victory in the Italian Cup, their coach Beppe Galuzzi radically changed the game of “purple” and switched to the system “double-ve”. They won their first trophy “Violets” in the Italian Cup in 1940, the very first “Scudetto” they had to wait another 16 years – they won their first Italian championship in 1956.
After that, the club ranked second in the next four seasons. In the 1961 season, the club again took the Italian Cup, and was also successful in Europe, becoming the Cup Winners’ Cup, defeated the Rangers in the finals, winning two games, 2: 0 and 2: 1, respectively. In the 70-80s, the game “Fiorentina” was illuminated by Giancarlo Antonioni, nicknamed “the archangel.” This player is very harmoniously merged with his city. Nowhere could the “archangel” achieve such a delicate game, a casual game in the air and on earth, as in Florence, a Renaissance city with a wealth of museums, palaces, villas, galleries.
The capital of Tuscany with a population of 450 thousand people (irrigated by Arno, a river of fairy tales and legends), which has become a major tourist center, cannot accept any football. There, as nowhere else, the game must conform to art. Such players include the Swede Kurt Hamrin and, of course, another Italian, almost as talented as Antonioni – Roberto Baggio. The Fiorentina fans cheered up, even experienced captain Angelo Di Livio agreed to a significant salary cut and stayed at the club, ending his career only after the return of the purple ones to the elite. And after several years of wandering in the lower leagues in 2004, the team returned to the top division under its old name, familiar to its loyal fans.
Empoli FC and all teams: their great contribution will live forever!
Serie A is proud of teams like Torino, Juve, Sampdoria, Spal and Udinese. For the formation of the Italian football championship, as a serious event, teams such as Toro, Sassuolo, empoli (calcio consists this team as great part so we must mentioned it one more time) and Frosinone made a contribution that everyone remembers. In the first round (andata) of matches one opponent plays on the field, in the second (ritorno) – the others. In this case, the sequence of meetings is identical in both circles. The teams that took the last three places in the standings move to the next strength division of the country – Serie B. Accordingly, they rise to the top division of the Italian championship. The team’s application for the season should not exceed 25 people, while 4 players must grow in Italy, and another 4 players must be students of the club academy. From the 2015/16 season to the Serie A teams, it has become harder for players from non-EU countries to get through, as the regulations in this matter have been seriously tightened. The victory in the match brings the club 3 points, a draw – one, for the defeat the team does not get points. In those cases, if two or more teams get the same number of points, the championship regulations provide for additional indicators. The most priority of them (after the number of points) is the number of points gained in the games between these teams.
