Giuseppe Giannini, (born August 20, 1964 in Rome) is a former Italian international footballer, currently managing Serie B side Gallipoli Calcio. He spent the majority of his 16-year playing career with A.S. Roma and was regarded by supporters as a club symbol before his successor Francesco Totti.

Club career

Giannini began his career as a youngster with Almas Roma, a club based in Rome. From a young age he attracted the attention of many of Italy's top clubs, eventually signing with Roma ahead of rivals including S.S. Lazio and A.C. Milan. He made his Serie A debut on January 31, 1982 in a 1-0 defeat to A.C. Cesena and went on to make over 400 appearances for the club over the following fifteen years. During his time at Roma, whom he went on to captain, he won Serie A once and the Coppa Italia three times, he also played in the UEFA Cup final during the 1990-91 season

In 1996 Giannini left Roma to play in Austria for Sturm Graz, with whom he spent just half a season before returning to Italy due to homesickness. Before retiring in 1998 Giannini had brief spells with Napoli and Lecce.

International career

The Italian national team capped Giannini 47 times. He made his international debut against Malta in a European Championship qualifier in December 1986, he went on to represent Italy at both Euro '88 and Italia '90. Giannini's final appearance for his country came on October 12, 1991 against the Soviet Union. He was often referred to as "Il Principe" (The Prince) by Italian sports journalists during his playing career[1], a reference to his grace on the pitch.

Managerial career

Giannini has worked as a match analyst for RAI following his retirement; he also served as the manager of Serie C1 club Foggia from July 2003 to January 2005, when he was sacked. He started the season 2005-06 at the helm of Serie C1 side Sambenedettese, but was fired on February 2006. Later that year, Giannini then served as coach of Romanian side Argeş Piteşti, but was axed in October after nine consecutive defeats, and replaced by Dorinel Munteanu. On September 2007 he was unveiled as new manager of Massese, another Serie C1 club,[2] being however sacked on February 2008 following disagreements with the board.[3]

On July 2008 he was unveiled as new head coach of Lega Pro Prima Divisione team Gallipoli.[4] In his first season in Salento, Giannini guided Gallipoli to triumph in the league, thus winning a historical first promotion in Serie B for the club.[5] A few days later, however, Giannini and Gallipoli announced to have parted company, also because of financial issues involving the club and some rumoured interest for Giannini from other clubs.[6] Nevertheless, Giannini was then confirmed as coach by new Gallipoli owner D'Odorico.
