Bruno Giordano Joins FA Euro

Updated: Feb 21, 2019

Hot off the heels of the insane announcement that Paolo Berrettini has joined FA Euro, the club has made another monumental staff acquisition. FA Euro communicates that Lazio & Napoli legend, Bruno Giordano has joined the club. The former Scudetto winner and Lazio captain, a goalscoring machine who has scored 129 goals in 377 professional caps, will be involved with player development and the club's upcoming Viareggio Cup selection process.

Club Career | Born in Rome, Giordano played for most of his career with Lazio, debuting in Serie A on 5 October 1975. He soon revealed himself to be one of the most effective Italian strikers, winning the Serie A capocannoniere title during the 1978–79 season, scoring 19 goals. With Lazio, Giordano became the top goalscorer during the 1982–83 season, helping his team to finish in second place behind Milan, and to re-gain promotion to Serie A the following season. He is currently Lazio's top ever goalscorer in the Coppa Italia. In 1985, he was sold to Napoli for 5 billion lire.

At Napoli, along with Diego Maradona and later Careca, he formed the famed "Ma-Gi-Ca" front line. Giordano, and the rest of the attacking trio, was instrumental in Napoli's first historical scudetto win of 1987; he also helped Napoli to win a rare domestic double that season, by capturing the 1987 Coppa Italia that year, and finishing as the top scorer of the competition with 10 goals.
