Giovanni Trapattoni ( Italian: Giovanni Trapattoni ; born March 17, 1939 , Cusano-Milanino , Italy ) is an Italian footballer and coach.
|Was born||March 17, 1939 (80 years)|
Cusano Milanino , Italy
Coaching career began working with the youth teams of Milan ..  In 1974 he was appointed “and. about. the head coach ”of the main team, but after losing the cup final against Magdeburg and 7th place in Serie A, was replaced by Gustavo Dzhanyoni .
In the 1975/76 season, he returned to the Milan coaching bridge and helped take the club bronze medals in the national championship. In total, as the head coach of the team, he spent 47 matches, of which in Serie A - 36 matches.
By the beginning of the next championship, he headed the Juventus Turin and won the first season in the Italian Championship and the UEFA Cup , the first European trophy in the history of the club.
Over 10 seasons of working with a team in the national arena, he won 6 scudetto and 2 cups of Italy . On the international stage, he achieved a unique result, winning all club tournaments available for the European team: the Champions Cup , the Cup Winners' Cup , the UEFA Cup , the European Super Cup and the Intercontinental Cup .
In 1986 he headed the Inter Milan. In the first season he brought the club into shape, raising from last year's sixth to third place in Serie A. In 1989, he won the gold medals of the championship. But the main achievement was not that it was Inter’s first success for the past nine years, but that the gap from the second number, Napoli, was an incredible 11 points, which has not been seen in Italy since the middle of 50 -y's
The next two seasons were more relaxed: twice the Milanese were third in the national championship and won the UEFA Cup, the first such trophy for the club and the first in the European arena over the past more than a quarter of a century.
In 1991, he returned to Juventus, which was experiencing a protracted crisis. Over the past four seasons, the team was out of competition for the podium of series A. For three seasons, under the leadership of Trapattoni, Juventus became second in the championship, reached the Italian Cup final in 1992 and won the 1993 UEFA Cup.
Bavaria and Cagliari
In the season 1994/1995 headed the Munich "Bavaria". The season in the Bundesliga was unsuccessful: “Bavaria”, the champion of the last season, was only the fifth. Much better things were in the Champions League, where the team reached the semifinals, for the first time in the last four years.
To the surprise of many, the next season led Cagliari, the middle peaks of Serie A, but then returned to the leadership of Bavaria and became the first foreign coach to win the Bundesliga (season 1996/97). The list of club trophies was also supplemented with a victory in the German League Cup and the German Cup, the first for Bavaria since 1986.
After finishing his German epic, Trapattoni returned to Italy and headed Fiorentina. The success was not long in coming: in the debut season, the Florentines were among the top three winners of the national championship, again for the first time in the last fifteen years, and also reached the final of the national cup, where they lost to Parma in stubborn confrontation. Could "Violets" adequately declare themselves in the UEFA Cup. In the first round, Hajduk from Split (2: 1 and 0: 0) was beaten. In the second round, Grasshopper was beaten away (0: 2).
In the second home match, held in Salerno, after the first half, “Fiorentina” led 2-1, leaving almost no chance for the opponent. But the fans of the club managed to injure the UEFA delegate with a firecracker, for which the Italians were eventually disqualified.
The following year, the Florentines after a long break made their debut in the Champions League. In the third preliminary round, Polish Vidzev was confidently beaten (3: 1 and 2: 0). Then they managed to go through the first group stage, leaving behind the London Arsenal competition. In the second group stage, they defeated Manchester United and Valencia in their field, but this was not enough to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.
Italian National Team
In July 2000, Trapattoni led the national team after the resignation of Dino Zoff . Having confidently held the qualifying tournament for the 2002 World Championship , without losing a single match and having only two been drawn, the team looked inexpressive at the very world championship. Having won the national team of Ecuador in the debut match with a score of 2: 0, the squadra adzurra further lost to the Croatian team 1: 2.
In the decisive match for leaving the group with the team of Mexico , Trapattoni's wards lost for a long time, and only 85-minute Del Piero 's goal allowed him to even the score and brought the Italians to the 1/8 final.
A meeting with the South Korean team in the first stage to the departure, in which the judge from Ecuador Byron Moreno removed from the field Francesco Totti and canceled the goal of Damiano Tommazi marked the beginning of rumors about the "South Korean plot".
At the 2004 European Championships, Italy’s national team failed to break out of the group after the scandalous draw between Sweden and Denmark, and on July 25 Marcello Lippi was named as Trapattoni’s replacement as head coach of the team.
On July 5, 2004, Trapattoni was introduced as the head coach of the Benfica Lisbon. With the club he won the Portuguese Championship, the first for the club in the last eleven years, and reached the cup final, where he lost to Vitoria (Setubal) .
In the summer of 2005, he signed a contract with the German " Stuttgart ". For 20 games led by a new coach, the club showed extremely poor results. This is largely due to the confrontation of the head coach with the players of the team, who accused him of unwillingness to practice attacking football. In the end, the instigators, Jon Dal Tommasson and Jesper Grenquier , firmly settled on the bench, but the team had a disgusting atmosphere and nine months after the start of work, Trapattoni was replaced by Armin Fe . The team said that both football players, the leaders of the Danish national team at the European Championship 2004, fell victim to Trapattoni’s vengeance for organizing a scandalous draw in the match between Sweden and Denmark, which did not allow the Italians (coach Trapattoni) to continue the fight for the first prize.
Red Bull Salzburg
Already in May 2006, he resumed work, this time with the Austrian Red Bull . Having created a tandem with Lothar Matthaus , on the move won the Austrian Bundesliga . A similar achievement was subdued to the Salburgers for the first time since 1997.
National Team of Ireland
From 2008 to 2013, Trapattoni was the head coach of the Irish national team . She passed the qualifying group for the 2010 World Championships , where the team took second place, playing a draw twice during the draw with the then reigning world champions of the Italian national team. In the play-offs for the right to hit the world championship, the Irish gave way to the French team . The decisive goal in this confrontation was scored with a gross violation of the rules: Thierry Henry first handled the ball, and then gave the scoring pass to William Gallas, who was in the “ offside ” position. Already in 2015, during the scandalous investigation of the corruption activities of FIFA, it turned out that the Irish Football Federation received 5 million dollars, so that the said federation did not start the proceedings. Additionally, it should be noted that the World Cup in South Africa 2010 turned out to be perhaps the most unfortunate world championship for the French, who not only did not leave the group, but also caused a scandal, as a result of which several players were expelled and stopped playing for the French team.
But already in 2012, Trapattoni led the Irish team to the final stage of the European Championship, which for this team was the first hit in a major international tournament in the last ten years, and, in particular, turned out to be only the second Euro participation in the entire tournament history (the first time in 1988).
After the game the national team of Ireland at the European Championship 2012, at the age of 73 years 85 days, became the oldest coach of the European Championships.
In September 2013, left the team after losing to the Austrian national team (0: 1).
