Taffarel Claudio


Did you Know?

Regarded as one of the greatest Brazilian goalkeepers of all time, Taffarel was known to be a rational, effective, and generally consistent keeper, with good fundamental goalkeeping technique, who favoured an efficient rather than spectacular playing style. His main attributes were his explosive reflexes, positional sense, and calm composure in goal, as well as his penalty-stopping abilities; due to the muscle power in his legs that he developed while playing beach volleyball in his youth, he was known for his surprising spring and elevation from a standstill position, despite his modest stature, which gave him significant hang time and aided him in stopping penalties.

Sardini Andrea


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Andrea Sardini during the Serie A game between Juventus and Reggiana which took place in Torino, “Stadio Delle Alpi”, on September 19th 1993. Juventus defeated Reggiana 4-0 and the fourth goal was scored by Alessandro Del Piero at the minute ’81, coming off the bench. This was the first Alessandro Del Piero’s goal in Serie A. So this Reggiana’s shirt is an authentic piece of football’s history since it is the shirt worn by the first opponent goalkeeper beated by Alessandro Del Piero in Serie A.

Futre Paulo


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Paulo Futre during the season 1994/1995. It is a quite rare shirt because the team used this style of shirt in two games only. The shirt was given after the game by Futre to a team mate of his, whom we got it from. Halfway through 1993–94, despite being linked with A.C. Milan, Futre eventually transferred to newly promoted Serie A side A.C. Reggiana 1919. On his debut, on 21 November 1993, he scored a memorable individual goal which opened the scoring in a 2–0 success over U.S. Cremonese and gave the hosts their first ever win in the top flight; during the second half, however, he suffered a serious injury after an aggressive challenge from Alessandro Pedroni, which kept him out for the rest of the season as his team narrowly avoided relegation. The following campaign, Futre managed only 12 appearances and netted four times, which were not enough to save Reggiana from relegation. For 1995–96 he did move to Milan but, due to continuing injury troubles as well as competition from other talented offensive, creative players in his position, he only featured once for the Fabio Capello-led team, coming on as a substitute for Roberto Baggio in the final match of the season against Cremonese at the San Siro, which ended 7–1 for the hosts who celebrated the league conquest.
