Jancker Carsten

Things to Know:

In the season 2002-2003 an authentic football star arrived in Udine. Carsten Jancker arrived from Bayern Munich where he played from 1996 to 2002. It was definitely the best period of his career, a spell which included four Bundesliga titles and victory in the 2001 UEFA Champions League. At Bayern, Jancker was partnered with the Brazilian inside-forward Giovane Élber, often rated as one of the Bundesliga’s best attacking players. He arrived in Udine in 2002 but the move was not a success; over two seasons and 35 games, the forward registered only two goals. Jancker was said to be “too slow and predictable for Serie A” by one Italian football website. In 2004, Jancker returned to Germany with Kaiserslautern and showed a slight improvement in form, netting five times in 25 games.

Di Natale Antonio


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Antonio Di Natale during the Serie A game between Udinese and A.C.Milan which took place in Udine, “Stadio Friuli”, on April 25th 2015. Udinese defeated A.C.Milan 2-1. This is a unique two-halved shirt used by the team in this game only.  Provided by club technical partner HS, half of the shirt featured the look of Udinese’s 2014/15 while the other half used the design of second tier handball team ASD Pallamano Rovereto Vallagarina. The new kit was the highlight of the 2015 “Dacia Sponsor Day – The Split” event led by Udinese’s primary sponsor. The initiative celebrated motivational stories from lesser known sports such as Pallamano’s struggle to survive in recent years. At times the team has had to sell sweets and cakes to secure funding while playing at local middle school gyms. Despite previously announcing he would retire from professional football at the end of the 2013–14 Serie A season, Antonio Di Natale confirmed on 30 May 2014 he had decided he would not retire and would continue to play on into the 2014–15 season. Di Natale scored four goals in a 5–1 win over Ternana in the third round of the Coppa Italia on 23 August 2014. On 31 August, in Udinese’s opening Serie A match of the 2014–15 season, he scored two second half goals in a home win over newly promoted Empoli. On 23 November 2014, he scored his 200th goal in his 400th appearance in Serie A. On 2 February 2015, he was offered an $8 million contract by a yet unnamed team in Major League Soccer (MLS); he had been linked to MLS expansion club New York City FC. On 28 April, Di Natale scored his 205th goal in Serie A, matching Italian legend Roberto Baggio as the sixth-highest goalscorer in Serie A history, at age 37; this was also his 700th career appearance. The following matchday, on 3 May, he scored in a 1–0 victory over Hellas Verona, overtaking Baggio with his 206th goal in Serie A. On 12 May, he once again took back his decision to retire at the end of the 2014–15 season, announcing his intention to play another season.
