Celebrative Sticker #82: TOMMASO MAESTRELLI!

In football, do the coaches or the players matter more? Everyone has an idea of him, but Maestrelli’s influence in that 1973/74 championship was certainly fundamental and successful. The solidarity Celebrative Sticker #82 is dedicated to the Italian champion trainer with Lazio.

Tommaso Maestrelli was born in Pisa on 7 October 1922. Due to the work of his father, a railway worker, he changed several cities until arriving in Bari in 1935. A good part of his career as a footballer was dedicated to the Apulian team, with over 200 appearances, interspersed with seasons in Rome and Lucca.

His sporting activity was suspended due to the Second World War, where Maestrelli found himself fighting in Yugoslavia, first with the Italian army and subsequently with the partisan forces against the Nazi occupiers. He returns to his family in Bari with a bronze medal for military valor.

After finishing his career as a footballer, he began his career as a coach. Before his arrival in Rome, the seasons in Foggia were memorable. In 1971/72 his arrival in the capital, the legend could begin, first coming close to the scudetto in 1972/73 and the following year the historic unforgettable victory of the 1973/74 championship.

It is the Lazio of Chinaglia, D’Amico, Re Cecconi, Wilson, Nanni, separated off the pitch, but warriors united on the pitch, in the name of Tommaso Maestrelli.

Until the 1975/76 season Maestrelli’s big heart will be for Lazio, only fate was able to separate them, but the memory of him remains indelible for all the fans.

We thank the Maestrelli family for their collaboration and the archive photos, in particular the photo on holiday at the seaside, of Tommaso together with his children.
