Walter Zenga (born 28 April 1960 in Milan) has been one of the best Italian goalkeeper ever. Actually is a coach with many experiences around the world.

FC Internazionale and Italy National team have been the most important teams of his career.

During his playing time, Zenga was nicknamed Spider-Man due to his goalkeeping skills, especially his agility.

Walter Zenga, who started his career in 1978 with Salernitana in Serie C1, played for Savona and Sambenedettese, before joining FC Internazionale in 1982. He became Inter's first choice in the goal in his second year with the team, and continued in that position for 11 seasons, until 1994, winning the legendary 58 points scudetto in the 1988–89 season, and the UEFA Cup in 1991 and 1994; his last season with the club.

Sampdoria, and then Padova were the last two teams in the homeland Italy. New England Revolution and Major League Soccer were the following step of his life in which he decided to become a manager. 58 caps with Italy and the third place reached at the FIFA World Cup 1990, represent his international career’s best.

USA, Romania, Serbia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Italy and Saudi Arabia, are the country he lived as a football manager. Sincere and genuine on the bench Zenga kept the same temper he had when playing. Among titles won in Serbia and Romania, he still remain well known for the coach's care for free kick schemes, he showed in Sicily with Catania.

On May 11, 2010 he was announced new head coach of Saudi Arabian football club Al-Nassr.

Outstanding reaction and ability when staying in the goal but he wasn't very effective when going out of it especially catching high balls. He had incredible consistency thanks to which he never went into crisis despite the fact that he occasionally made mistakes in the matches. I don't know how much this description is accurate since I didn't see him making many mistakes, in fact he won the award as best goalkeeper in the world three times between 1989 and 1991. However since he has CONS 8 here he might have a slight decrease in MEN. I think there's no need for such high AGI which could be on 83. Maybe SPS and LPS could be 1-2 point lower than LPA and SPA considering that his shots weren't powerful. The rest seems ok to me. Maybe this video could help a bit if you think some other values need a change.
