It had to be a character in the world of football is the become, but the "great". Claudio Gentile was born in Libya by Italian parents, and soon for him the nickname "Gaddafi" is an obligatory step, just as the North African leaders is about to become a member of Fiat in the first floor of the mid-seventies, at a time of crisis group.

Besides, his curly hair and his brown skin aroused no little fear, for a player who will become one of the most ruthless defenders of the history of our football. Ruthless, but fair. He stopped his opponent, but never foul. Passed him at speed, with guile and technique.

Juventus comes in the season 73-74, just twenty years. The following year he became the owner in order to win its first flag. His career is that of Trapattoni's Juventus, which will bring over nine years to win six championships. As he prepares to win his first championship, Bernadini convenes in national post-Monaco, when our team was entirely rebuilt. He will play fullback in pairs with Francesco Rocca, in a role that will see alternating even his team-mate Marco Tardelli. The column will soon become indispensable to our defense and make him the champion Bearzot precious that we all remember.

At any meeting of the attacker for him, marking the most dangerous, Bearzot sure that Gentile will stop.

Play the qualifiers for the World Cup in Argentina and also realizes the goals of the advantage in the delicate trip to Finland. The World Cup will play in pairs with Antonio Cabrini, creating a pair of defenders that will make the history of our football. Now become a player internationally and in the next World Cup in Spain will be the absolute protagonist. For good luck will grow the mustache threatening to make her look even more "bad". The vote has done is to tagliarseli only if Italy will arrive in the final.

In the match with Argentina Gentile must mark the living legend Diego Maradona, Diego begins at once to the great and understands that life will last. In the first few minutes ahead of all the balloons making sterile Argentine attacks. Maradona loses belief with the passage of time with their opponents play harder now annihilated, can no longer pose any danger to Zoff. In the next match against Brazil Dear still a difficult task, mark Zico. The duel is based on speed and technique, but in the end make very little Zico.

For all the image to remember and to Brazilian champion at the beginning of the game showing his shirt torn from a Gentile already angry but correct. However, comes his second yellow card and suspension for the semi-final against Poland, but in the end we will, without a mustache to mark a Rummenigge is not in excellent physical condition.

Now after the Gentile world is the victory symbol of the "bad" par excellence of the football world, an adjective, surely exaggerated. In the coming rivals Juventus Platini and Boniek, but there will be the defeat of Athens and the Cup Winners' Cup victory in 1984.

After winning the national team in European Cup elimination to disappoint. Claudius is thirty years and ten years of national is no longer the owner and Bergomi Baresi and then take his place for him on the bench and remnants of the game. His last link in the blue dress in a friendly against Canada in 1984. Will be the owner and captain of the band for the first and only time.

A few months after moving in Fiorentina, an ambitious team with champions such as gangway and Oriali, Pecci and Pulici. With the Viola played three seasons before moving in 1988 to Piacenza, where he ended his playing career.

How to win just as technical, training for six years, the national under 21, winning the European title in 2004 and a few months after the Olympic bronze in Athens.
