great striker from Milan, Rome and the national team


At 73 years old Pierino Prati, great striker of Milan, Rome and Italy of the 60s and 70s, died. Another bad news for the world of Italian football, which a few days ago cried over the death of the great Mariolino Corso. Prati won the Champions League with Milan and the Europeans with Italy.

Prati was one of the greatest Italian strikers ever

Italian football today is saddened by the loss of Pierino Prati, he was 73 years old and had been ill for some time and was in the hearts of fans, especially of Milan and Roma fans. He teamed up with the Rossoneri with the great Gianni Rivera who also won the 1968 European championship alongside Prati, the only title won in that event by Italy. And he also lived in the 1970 World Cup in blue. Bruno Conti wanted to pay homage and remember him on Instagram by writing: “Rest in peace”.

Prati won the Champions Cup with Milan and the European championship with Italy

It was the offensive partner of Gianni Rivera, everyone would have liked to play with the ‘Golden Boy’ but you had to be very good at making the assists of the strongest Italian player ever. And Pierino la Peste, as they called him as a young man, was a phenomenal striker. It was not by chance that he was a darling everywhere. With Milan he won the Champions Cup in 1969 and twice the Cup Winners’ Cup (1968 and 1973). In red and black he also won a championship, an Intercontinental Cup and two Italian Cup. With Italy he won the 1968 European Championships and competed in the 1970s World Cup in Mexico. He had not been called up initially. But Pietro Anastasi, who disappeared a few months ago, had a particular injury in retirement and the c.t. Valcareggi summoned Boninsegna and Prati, one of the two was to remain outside, instead both left for Mexico, Lodetti got off the plane (a midfielder, also from Milan). He played for four seasons with Roma and also wore the shirts of Fiorentina and Salernitana.
