Poul Aage Rasmussen was the wild animal of Serie A in 50's. The most feared striker in Italy during the 50's due to his fighting spirit and dangerous tackles which led to much controversy, even the newspapers attacked him for his dangerous play. Very brave and combative, always giving his best and fighting for every ball, putting his head in most dangerous situations and people of Bergamo loved him although he was technically on modest level. Besides his temperament, he was most known for his fantastic goals from long distance and from all possible angles and positions, as well as his strength. His technique was far from ideal, he was pretty clumsy in his movements with bandy legs never looked smooth, but all of that was compensated with his mentality, commitment, strength and especially his great scoring record. In three and a half seasons at Atalanta, all in series A, the Danish striker Rasmussen has played 110 matches and scored 53 goals, which still places him on the fourth position among the all time scorers of the Bergamo based club. Acquired in 1952, coming from the IF Skovshoved to replace Jeppson who moved on a big transfer to Napoli for a record transfer fee. They were like two different people on the ground but the difference was only cosmetic, in terms of goals there was no difference at all. In the field was a guarantee for his teammates and the fans. On 31 December 1955, during the game Roma - Atalanta on Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Rasmussen had collision with Roma player Amos Cardarelli and suffered huge damage in his leg, knee, tibia, fibula and ligament, all broken. Unfortunately that serious injury meant the end of his career, he tried to come back after a couple of surgeries, but didn't manage to play again and decided to retire.
