Miguel Ángel Montuori played on inside forward position. Despite the legends like Giancarlo Antognoni and Roberto Baggio, Montuori is regarded as Firentina's greatest No 10. Player with fantastic dribbling and technique, accurrate passes and good scorer as well. Montuori was very inventive player who needed some time to settle in Italy but soon became one of the most beloved players in history of Fiorentina. In the splendor of his life of sample (162 appearances for Fiorentina; blue 12 times, 2 goals for his country) a ball in the head during a league match between Fiorentina and Perugia De Martino, 19 April 1961, caused him severe internal injuries . Despite a number of delicate brain surgery Montuori was forced to abandon football. Since then he tried 'different paths: cooperation on matters football with a newspaper in Florence, the artistic production coming to set up some shows, the job of coach of some amateur teams in Tuscany. Then the "recall" of Chile, a country in which he Argentine by birth, he had established himself as a footballer. Moved 'to Santiago with his family (wife and 4 children, 2 of whom live in Florence and 2 in the Chilean capital), but had no particular luck. A dozen years ago he decided to go back and Florence 'old and new friends willing to help him. Was included among the observers of the youth purple. Among his last roles to football commentator on local television. He resisted for a long time 'cause accustomed to adversity' of life, the evil which now urged him without mercy 'for several months. Montuori died of a pulmonary edema, All Saints Hospital Villa Florentin. His engagement to Fiorentina has truly unique characteristics. Florence was known to him only that he was born in Rosario in 1932, the son of a fisherman in Sorrento emigrated some years earlier in Argentina. Only data are certain: it was reported by a priest, Father Volpi and that cost a paltry 18 million. Arrival 'to Florence, then the team that would win the first championship, between the general disinterest. It seemed obvious that it was a "dustbin". But the field proved 'that the priest had been right. And Miguel is proving 'a sample with Julinho and became an idol of the Florentines. Before crossing the ocean Montuori had played as a striker - then proved too quick and relentless in purple - Racing in Buenos Aires and nell'Universidad Catolica in Santiago. Fiorentina scored in 162 appearances with 73 goals (only Hamrin 151 and 124 Batistuta have done better). In the national team (12 caps) made his debut against France in '56 and played the last game against Switzerland in 1960, scoring three goals, one of the blue. In short a brilliant career until April '61 when, in fact, there is' the tragedy. He found 'the strength to overcome the tragedy in his religious faith as a Christian. The same faith that has guided him in these his last days on earth suffered. He won one Italian title in season 1955-56 with Fiorentina. For Italy national football team he got 12 international caps and scored 2 goals. He died in Florence in 1998.
