Giovanni Trapattoni

Republic of Ireland

Date of birth: 17 March 1939
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: AC Milan, AS Varese
Coaching career: AC Milan, Juventus (twice), FC Internazionale Milano, FC Bayern München (twice), Cagliari Calcio, ACF Fiorentina, Italy, SL Benfica, VfB Stuttgart, FC Salzburg, Republic of Ireland

• Capped 17 times by Italy, Trapattoni spent the majority of his club career as a defender and ball-winning midfielder with Milan, winning seven major trophies including two European Champion Clubs' Cups.

• Started coaching with Milan but established himself as one of Italy's greatest ever 'allenatori' during ten-year spell with Juventus, which yielded victories in all three major European club competitions – an unprecedented achievement – and six Serie A titles.

• Decamped to Inter in 1986 and led Nerazzurri to long-awaited Scudetto triumph in 1988/89 as well as the UEFA Cup, a trophy he won again during a second spell at Juve from 1991 to 1994.

• Moved abroad and won national titles with Bayern, Benfica and Salzburg, becoming the first coach since Ernst Happel to win league championships in four different countries. No success, however, with the Italian national team after unexpected early exits at 2002 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2004.

• Returned to international management with Ireland in 2008; led the team undefeated through 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying group – including two draws against Italy – before suffering play-off defeat by France. Reached the play-offs again for UEFA EURO 2012 but this time there was a happy ending as Estonia were defeated 5-1 as Ireland qualified for the first time since 1988.
