From the Football’s Greatest series, a profile of Giovanni Trapattoni. While many Irish people might argue if we hired Trap with his best days behind him, his legacy in football will stand the test of time.
“Giovanni Trapattoni sometimes known as “Trap” or “Il Trap”, is an Italian football coach and former player, considered the most successful club coach in the history of Serie A. One of the most celebrated managers in football history, Trapattoni is one of only two coaches, alongside the Austrian Ernst Happel, to have won the league title in four different countries (Italy, Germany, Portugal, and Austria). Alongside the German Udo Lattek, he is the only coach to have won all three major European club titles.”
