Riccio was playmaker of the Cagliari's golden generation which won historic scudetto. He was classic playmaker, in early years located more offensive as inside forward but than in Cagliari playing deeper in midfield as the constructor of the attacks. Not too fast but very intelligent, could create and cover, good technician, had solid strength and knew to score some goals especially in early part of career. Born on 13.10.1939 in Basildon, Ricciotti's already on display at the College of Udine where Bertoni stands out among their peers in the game of football. At just 14 years we find him in the first team in the Basilian fantastic gallop in the then First Division, culminating in the victorious playoff S. Vito al Tagliamento against the Sguerzi, which allows access to Juventus in the Promotion. The following year Ricciotti is to gain experience in Spilimbergo, in the Fourth Series championship. Spilimbergo A Ricciotti played the first two years and is full of satisfactions. The fact Spilimbergo dispute an excellent championship finishing in 2 nd place in the company of the CRDA and the Schio, behind the Mestrina. Bitter does appear the following year, culminating in relegation due to the penultimate place in the standings, but have already put on him the eyes of the Florentine observers, so that in 1956-57 Ricciotti began drawing in the youth team lily. His debut in Serie A takes place in Trieste on 12.10.1958 in a Triestina - Fiorentina 1-3: In that year Ricciotti dispute in the top 5 games as a striker, scoring two goals. The fate wants its presence to replace Montuori, May 24, 1959 in Udine, in a decisive game for Udinese for Fiorentina (obviously to stay in Serie A and for the title of champion of Italy, respectively ). Check the Udinese 2-0 with goals in the Sassi The doubling time of rigor and Bettini in the second half, after an intoxicating action Pentrelli counterattack. Ricciotti was not discouraged, and his legendary tenacity, strong character, personality and off the field contribute to its success, gained after a year in Palermo in Serie A (1959-60, 16 appearances and 4 goals) and three years in that Reggio Emilia between the B series (1960-61, 1961-62) and Series C, where it collects 106 games and 20 goals. Paradoxically, the fact of playing in Serie C in 1962-63 in the same group of Cagliari is the luck of Ricciotti. Sandokan Silvestri, that Cagliari coach, he wants with him in the team that has just won promotion to Serie B in 1962-63 tournament, being able to buy it for the figure of 32 million. Cagliari, which rapidly put on display some Gigi Riva, focuses on the first attempt in 1963-64 promotion to Serie A with 49 points behind the Varese (51) and so Ricciotti is new, but in plan stable in the top flight at the age of 25 years. Ricciotti promotion that makes a significant contribution with 12 goals and 38 of 38 matches. For four years, Cagliari, in the meantime had called technical guide to the philosopher Scopigno, he wavers between 6 ° and 11 ° position. Ricciotti has its own place-based education in winning the respect of fans, journalists and technicians. Gianni Brera repeatedly indicates greatt as a possible director of the Italian national squad complaining of lost Ricciotti because of its hypothetical short-sightedness. agliari is the second in 1968-69 in the standings with four lengths of the Italian champions Fiorentina. The following year (1969-70) is the year of the consecration of Cagliari, Italy with 45 sample points (Inter 41). Brera writes that "the philosopher Scopigno sets the game according to the Italian Form: Wax jostle in the midfield, Nene, and Domenghini greatt. In Cagliari Ricciotti plays again in the next two years (1970-71 and 1971-72), scoring 223 Serie A appearances (16 goals). Is released in the summer of 1972 to Lanerossi Vicenza, passing fading for its refusal: Ricciotti prefers to close the active soccer, opting to stay close to activities launched in Cagliari.
