Angelo Sormani

Ángelo Benedicto Miguel Sormani (Italian: [sorˈmaːni];[needs Portuguese IPA] born 3 July 1939) is an Italian-Brazilian former football manager and player, who played as a forward; he was capable of playing anywhere along the front-line, as a centre-forward, as well as in an attacking midfield role, or also as a winger on the right flank. Born in Brazil, he represented the Italian national football team at the 1962 FIFA World Cup. Despite lacking pace, he was a physically strong, creative and intelligent player with excellent technical ability; throughout his career, he was known for his tactical versatility, power and determination, as well as his capability to take part in and initiate attacking plays due to his passing ability.[1][2] Following his retirement, he also worked as a manager, coaching two clubs for which he formerly played: Roma, and Napoli.[1]
