Aldo Olivieri was one of the greatest Italian keepers of all time, and surely the most underrated and forgotten one. He was one of the first keepers to start leaving the goal line, and he was very efficient in that thanks to his great agility and physicall shape. Olivieri had excellent reflexes and wasn't afraid of coming out from line to close the attackers. He began the 1929-30 season in Verona in Serie B, moving to Padua in 1933-34. There, he played only eight games, since during gameplay, an exit on a reckless striker (Andrea Greg) caused him the fracture of the skull. After just a year of convalescence, and against the advice of doctors, Olivieri went to play in the Lucchese cadet in the series, managing to win promotion to Serie A with the Tuscan team, where he spent four seasons and he was noticed by national coach Victor Well. Then, in the 1938-39 season he comes to Torino, called by Erbstein Egri, who had already coached in Lucca and was able to appreciate his character (reserved, quiet and introverted) and his courage in the outputs (thrilled the audience with spectacular flights), a style that earned him the nickname "Black Spider", which would later be given to Fabio Cudicini. In the thirties is the first goalie to wear the shirt of the Italian training FIFA against England with him are Foni, Rava and Silvio Piola. In the Torino team he played five championships for a total of 113 games before moving on to Brescia where he closed a career in Serie B in 1942-43, where he played 32 games. But Olivieri's fame is of course given the fact that he was the goalkeeper of the Italian national champion in 1938 in France, under the expert guidance of Vittorio Pozzo, replacing the holder of the first title four years ago, Gianpiero Combi. He debuted in the national team on November 15, 1936 in a 2-2 draw with Germany and played 24 games in which three must be added to the national "B". After the war he began the coaching career, even with Inter and Juventus, with good results. He died at age 90 in Versilia, where he had lived for a long time.

Stop the PSD copycats...
