Italian Football has a rich yet evolving history; from the class of Marco van Basten’s AC Milan, to the dominance of Inter and Juventus post 2004.
Who could forget those iconic images of the Milan Derby (from 2005), as Rui Costa and Marco Materazzi stood side by side amid the blaze of Stadio San Siro.
We can’t relive the past, but we can forge the future with the best Italian teams to manage in Football Manager 2021. Don a suit, boot up that computer and practise your best Italian accent.
This top 3 includes one fallen giant, a fans favourite and of course, the customary lower league challenge.
Renowned as one of the more successful teams in early Italian Football, Pro Vercelli won the Serie A title seven times between 1908 and 1922. The introduction of professionalism and rise of larger industrial cities such as Milan and Turin instigated Pro Vercelli’s decline.
Returning to Serie B in 2012 after a 64-year absence, Pro Vercelli yo yoed between leagues for a few seasons before settling in Serie C. Reinstating this once great club to Serie A would make a cracking little challenge for the experienced Football Manager.
