Aldo Maldera (1953-2012)

(IMG:http://www.direttanews.it/wp-content/uploads/maldera.jpg)

Position: defender (terzino)/midfielder

Actively played for Milan: 1971-72; 1973-82

Trophies with Milan: Coppa (71/72; 76/77), Scudetto (78/79), Mitropa Cup (81/82)

This August Milan legend Aldo Maldera (58) died. Maldera, also called Maldera III (to distinguish him from his two other brothers playing actively football). In Serie A Maldera played 228 matches and scored a total of 30 goals for Milan. He was selected for Italy's World Cup (1978) and Euro (1980) squad. After ending is playing career, he stayed in contact with Milan's board and acted from time to time as a consultant or middle man (especially for negotiations with Roma).

Carlo Petrini (1948-2012)

(IMG:http://www.storiedicalcio.altervista.org/images/Petrini_Milan_1968-69.jpg)

Position: attacker

Actively played for Milan: 1968-69

Trophies with Milan: European Cup (68/69)

Although he figured mostly as a bench player and only for one season at Milan, he still won the European Cup with Milan with overall 10 appearances and 2 goals made in Serie A and Europe. In a career full of controversies, scandals and tragedies, Petrini will mostly be remembered as a publicist, having written several books, including one on Berlusconi's Milan.


Bruno Mazza (1924-2012)

Position: midfielder

Actively played for Milan: 1942-43; 1944

Mazza started his career with Milan, making little impact (just 4 appearances) to become a starter with Inter in mid 1950's Scudetto-winning team.

Think we should keep this thread open in memory of any future Milan player(s) passing away.

Yeah, excellent idea. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sleep.gif) It truly will be a sad day when a Milan player I've personally seen play passes away. Regardless, I hope that day is far, far away. But it's good to have a place to pay respects to the legends and shirt-wearers of the years gone by.

Well, I'm a mod on some other none milan related forum and there usually an option to stick in the first post of the topic/when you go to edit the first post of the topic.

A few days ago, another old Milanista died.

Emiliano Farina (1928-2012)

(IMG:http://www.magliarossonera.it/protagonisti/img_giocF/farin.jpg)

Position: striker

Actively played for Milan: 1956-57

Trophies with Milan: Scudetto (56/57)

Made his debut for Milan in 1956 against Udinese. Farina was mostly a substitute player for Gastone Bean and Carlo Galli in the scudetto-winning squad of 1956/57. Yet he managed to make 7 appearances and score 4 goals Serie A, including a match-winner against Sampdoria.

Luigi Bonizzoni (1919-2012)

(IMG:http://www.magliarossonera.it/protagonisti/img_allB/bonizzoni2.jpg)

Position: midfielder

Actively played for Milan: 1939-40 (youth team)

Coaching career with Milan: 1957-60 (partly with Giuseppe Viani)

Trophies with Milan: Scudetto (58/59)

Won matches with Milan as coach: 54.02% (87 played; 47W, 25D, 15L)

Played for the Milan primavera team in the late 1930'ies, but made his name in duo with Giuseppe Viani as Milan's coach. Bonizzoni spent the first season as coach (1957/58) of the Coppa Italia team (entered the quarter finals), while Viani managed to end up only 9th in Serie A and lose the Champions Cup final match. Next Bonizzoni took over as head coach and won the domestic league under the likes of Schiaffino, Cesare Maldini, Buffon, Radice, Altafini and the charismatic captain Niels Liedholm. The next and final season of Bonizzoni as head coach saw Milan ending up 3rd in Italy, while being eliminated to Barcelona in the Champions Cup round of 16.
