The FIGC and President Gabriele Gravina would like to express their condolences to the family of Romano Fogli, a former player and coach who passed away today at the age of 83. A midfielder who always put in a shift and was blessed with good technical ability, Fogli was a Bologna icon, winning the 1963/64 Scudetto with the Rossoblù during a spell that lasted for over ten years. He then played for AC Milan, where he got his hands on the European Cup and Intercontinental Cup. He played 13 times for Italy, taking part in the 1966 World Cup.
As a coach, he won Serie C with Reggiana and also took charge of Bologna during the latter stages of the 1992/93 season before finishing his career as Trapattoni’s assistant at Fiorentina.
“He was a great figure in Italian football. He’ll be remembered as an Azzurro forever,” said FIGC President Gabriele Gravina.
