Two days ago, Stefano Borgonovo passed away. For those who not know him, he played with Milan in the 1980's and 1990's. He became very ill with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis diagnosed. Recently Roberto Baggio and other Milanista players organized charity football matches. Carlo Ancelotti once appealed publicly in favor of helping Borogonovo: 'Stefano was my team-mate, and he has a problem. We need everyone to help him because maybe there is a solution for this illness, but we have to be fast because his condition is not good. He cannot move, he can just speak with his eyes. He scored in the semi-final of the European Cup in 1990 against Bayern, and was a good striker inside the box. He was not so quick but very clever. He is a good guy, very funny, likes to joke, even now, but he has a very dangerous illness.'


In 1989 Borgonovo made 3 caps for Italy. The Italian football federation asked FIFA for a minute of silence before the semifinal kick-off against Spain but the request ended up being denied.

Position: striker

Actively played for Milan: 1986-1990 (loan spells at Como and Fiorentina included)

Trophies with Milan: Champions cup (1989/1990)


Stefano Borgonovo actually played only 1 full season for Milan. It was however the Champions cup winning season. As a vice-van Basten, Borgonovo played on 13 occasions and scored 2 goals against HJK Helsinki and Bayern München - the winning away goal in the semis extra-time.

Only a few days before Borgonovo's death, some Atlanta shock jocks were fired for an on-air skit that mocked former Saints player Steve Gleason's ALS.

When I read about that, I thought back to the charity game(s) in his name that Milan participated in, and now he's gone. And ALS just seems like one of the worst ways possible to go.

I hear don Cesare passed away. A true Milanista legend. I'll always cherish and remember him, especially for that legendary Inter-Milan match (0-6).

The guy was 84. That's pretty old. Probably died of natural causes.
