The collection of solidarity stickers is enriched by a new, fundamental role in the world of sport, the coach. Celebrative Sticker #42 is dedicated to Eugenio Bersellini.
Eugenio Bersellini, born in 1936, a former footballer from Brescia and Monza, owes his nickname “Iron Sergeant” to the harsh training methods. The Emilian coach also knew how to give moments of joy and tenderness, among friends, family and with his players. Even with the fans who have not forgotten him, especially for the decade that began with Sampdoria in 1975/76, then at Inter where in 5 years he will win the 1979/1980 Scudetto and two Italian Cups, followed by two years at Turin where he was the coach of the immortal 3-2 comeback in the derby against Juventus, to then return to Genoa and win the Sampdoria club’s first trophy: the 1984/85 Italian Cup.
For this reason, this solidarity sticker was created with 3 variants that could cover the unforgettable years, it is impossible to choose just one club, every football fan can decide which of the three stickers to have in his folder.
1979/80, Bersellini’s Inter ran towards the conquest of the Scudetto from the first matchday. A linear path, made even more exciting by the two championship derbies won and the poker trimmed to Juventus thanks to Altobelli’s hat-trick. Inter’s top scorer in the league is Alessandro Altobelli, with 15 goals. Evaristo Beccalossi made 7 of them, two of which in the derby against Milan. It’s a beautiful Inter and loved by Inter fans, Bersellini will stay at Inter for 5 seasons.
Coach of Toro for two seasons, from 1982 to 1984. strongly desired by the then President Sergio Rossi. In the first season, the date of March 27, 1983 is unforgettable. In the return derby Torino, down by two goals, recovered and overcame Juventus in three minutes, which fielded five World Champions as well as Platini and Boniek. Bonesso, Dossena and Torrisi, scorers of the three goals, send the grenade part of the Stadio Comunale to heaven.
Bersellini returns to Genoa after having already coached Sampdoria in the second half of the 1970s. With the trainer comes the first trophy of the Sampdoria club, the Italian Cup won in Marassi against Milan on 3 July 1985 and the same year in the championship he finishes in fourth place. These are the first steps of a team that will be the absolute protagonist in the 80s until the Scudetto with Boskov on the bench in 1990/91.
We thank the Bersellini family for having authorized and supported our initiative.
