INFO

Umberto Caligaris (July 26, 1901 – October 19, 1940) was an Italian international footballer who played, normally at left back, for A.S. Casale and Juventus. His 59 caps for the Italian national team stood as a record for many years. Born in Casale Monferrato (Piedmont), Caligaris spent the first nine years of his career with the local team, A.S. Casale. He made his debut for them on October 12, 1919 in a match against local rivals Valenzana Calcio which Casale won 3–1. Casale was then in the Italian First division (the predecessor to Serie A) and had won the championship in 1914. However they were never to repeat that success and although during Caligaris’s career with the club they twice qualified for the inter-regional semi-final of North Italy, they were unable to get further.

The Italian national team, however, did provide scope for his talents. He received his first cap in 1922 against Austria, selected in place of Virginio Rosetta as right back flanking the great Genoese left back Renzo De Vecchi (“Son of God” to the fans), who had been playing for Italy since 1910. From then until De Vecchi’s retirement from international football in March 1925, Rosetta and Caligaris were in competition for the right back position. He played for Italy in the 1924 Olympics, the match against Spain being the first in which he played alongside Rosetta.

After winning a bronze medal at the 1928 Summer Olympics, Caligaris left Casale to join Rosetta at Juventus. Here the two full backs, backed by Italian international goalkeeper Giampiero Combi, formed a formidable defensive combination. Juventus won five scudettoes in a row in the years 1930–35.

INFO:
Starting his career as a goalkeeper and then centre-forward, Caligaris transitioned into a full-back under Barbesino's direction in Casale's first team. He made 182 appearances and scored 18 goals from 1919 to 1928. He quickly became a key figure in the back-line for both Casale and Italy national team.
Caligaris stood out for his accurate left foot, powerful strides and acrobatic skills. Casale could always rely on him thanks to his consistently exceptional performances. He knew how to anticipate and tackle his opponents, doing so decisively but fairly. He would then start the offense for his team with powerful clearances or counter-attack on his own, taking advantage of solid dribbling and thunderous shooting that he mastered during his time as a striker. He would even join the forward line in the last portion of a match if his team needed to score. Moreover, he occasionally took free kicks.

QUOTES:
Spoiler: show
Quote:
"Every time Torino attacks, it's always Caligaris the one who shines"

Quote:
"Casale's win is also Caligari's win due to his exceptional performance"

Quote:
"Genoa players run rapidly towards Casale's goal but Caligaris clears and starts the attack by passing the ball to Mattea"

Quote:
"Udine's goalkeeper Lipizer saves a cannon shot from Caligaris"

Quote:
"Caligaris showed powerful clearances and firm tackles"

Quote:
"Some attack attempts by Doria players were denied by the iron defence of Monzeglio and Caligaris"

Quote:
"Caligaris can be admired when he stops an attack and starts his own, dribbling two players and reaching the opposition's area, but when he's about to shoot he slips and falls, allowing the Bohemians to counter-attack. And it's Caligaris who once again saves his team from a dangerous situation"

Quote:
"Caligaris joins the forward line in the last ten minutes of the match but the equaliser doesn't come"

Quote:
"The first half ends with Caligaris' free kick that goalkeeper Zamora neutralises with composure and responsiveness"

Quote:
"Samitier is about to challenge Deprà but Caligaris intervenes decisively and clears"

Quote:
"Like at Prague, Caligaris had a heroic performance against Austria"
