Why Rossi death touched to football lovers?
In his 14-year-long career, Rossi played for six different clubs and scored 134 goals in 338 matches. He won two Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia title, one European Cup Winners’ Cup title, one UEFA Super Cup title and one European Cup title, all with Juventus. In the 1977-78 season, Rossi was also Serie A’s top scorer.
The above honors made him a great player, but what really made him an Italian hero was the FIFA World Cup title he won in Spain in 1982 with his six goals.
While Rossi had already proven himself by having three goals and four assists in the 1978 Argentine World Cup, many questioned the decision of manager Enzo Bearzot to recruit him into the national team. And they had reasonable reasons to doubt that Rossi was drawn into “1980 Totonero,” the 1980 Series A and Series B match-fixing scandal in Italy in 1980, and was suspended for two years.
