ANGELO ORLANDO

Very few people in the world can say that they have played soccer professionally. Fewer still can say they played for a club as storied and respected as Inter Milan. Angelo Orlando, however, is one of the elite few who can say both those things without crossing any fingers or toes. In his time as a player, he lived out the dream of every aspiring athlete: to become a champion at the very highest level. In 1994, Angelo took his place in history as his Inter Milan side, which included Berti, Bianchi, and Bergkamp, defeated Austria Salzburg to take home the UEFA Cup. Angelo would go on to play over 120 matches for the Milanese giants before ending his distinguished playing career in 1998. His playing career includes featuring for Varese, Triestina, Udinese, Cremonese, and S.S. Juve Stabia. After retiring, he pursued a career as a coach, initially leading the Triestina Youth team, and later becoming an assistant manager for Latvian side FK Ventspils, alongside Carmine Balleri, where he managed a second-place finish in the top domestic league division. 

 

In 2001, Angelo met Joe Balsamo in Italy during Joe's championship victory at the Enzo Ferrari Tournament. It was there that Joe and Angelo began discussing the prospects of Angelo's "life after soccer," and started throwing around the idea of Angelo possibly coaching in the United States. When Joe announced his plan to reinvigorate the youth soccer culture in New York with FA Euro, Angelo was the first to get on board.
