Fabio Capello

The football career of Fabio Capello started in the 1964 when, at the age of 18, he debuts with SPAL. In 1967 he was bought by AS Roma, where he won his first title as a player, the Italian Cup. After his move to Juventus FC he won three League Titles and became a regular starter in the National team in the ’70s. In 1976 he left Juventus FC to join A.C. Milan where he finished his career as a player winning an Italian Cup and a League Title in 1980. Capello started his new career as a coach in the Rossoneri youth sector. He debuted on the bench of the A.C. Milan first team during the season 1986/87, when he was called in to replace Liedholm in his last days. Capello repaid the trust shown in him by new club president Silvio Berlusconi bringing the Rossoneri in the UEFA Cup after overcoming Sampdoria. During the 1991/92 season, he tries to fill the gap left by Arrigo Sacchi. Fabio Capello obtained a series of successful results overcoming, at least in Italy, his predecessor. He won three consecutive League Titles and his A.C. Milan side became known as  “The unbeatables”, playing 58 matches in a row, more than a tournament and a half, without a single loss. In the 1994 he won the UEFA Champions League, beating Cruyffs Barcelona 4-0 in the final. During the 1995/1996 season he won his fourth league title.
