Tarcisio Burgnich (born 25 April 1939 in Ruda, Italy) is a former Italian football defender.

After short spells at Udinese, Juventus and Palermo, it was with Internazionale that he found his spiritual home in the 1960s. Burgnich, a sweeper/right-back, played 467 times for the Nerazzurri, scoring 6 goals, and his aggressive, determined style was ideally suited to the catenaccio system operated by Helenio Herrera throughout Inter's glory years. Five Italian championships, two European Cups and two World Club Championships tell the tale of how successful Burgnich was. He was part of the Internazionale lineup of the 1960s still known today as La Grande Inter.

Burgnich was also a pillar of the Italian national team for more than a decade and helped them pick up their one and only European Football Championship title in 1968. He was on Italy's roster for the 1966, 1970 and 1974 FIFA World Cups. He represented the Azzurri 66 times, scoring twice.

He may best be membered for his quote about Brazilian star Pelé, at the 1970 World Cup Finals:

"I told myself before the game, 'he's made of skin and bones just like everyone else' — but I was wrong."[4]

After his retirement, Burgnich worked as a manager on and off for nearly twenty years, with little success. During this time he managed Catanzaro, Bologna, Como, Livorno, Foggia, Lucchese, Cremonese, Genoa, Ternana and Vicenza.
