The Legends of Turin's Finest (Series 6 Antonio Cabrini)

We are sorry that this series was absent for a few days. The reason for this was that at World Sport News Network we have recently been very busy making many things better such as opening a Google+ community so unfortunately a few things had to be put on hold and to our disappointment this was one of those series that was set aside. Nevertheless we are back and we will be sure to make up for this absence so to start this off we will begin with a female favourite, Antonio Cabrini.

While many men were jealous of Antonio Cabrini it has to be said that every man wished that they could be him. Cabrini was known as Bell' Antonio because of his appearance and ability to attract many many women but not just that he was also an incredible footballer, he was able to achieve every mans dreams and more.

Cabrini was an Italian left back and a good one at that. He impressed a lot in the early stages of his career and it took him just three years to move from Serie C side Cremonese to Italian Champions Juventus while spending a brief time at Atalanta in-between. Many of you are probably thinking that he was not a loyal player and after playing for three different teams in three years but he found Juventus as his home. Bell' Antonio spent 13 years in Turin playing 352 Serie A games while scoring 35 goals. After thirteen years in a black and white top winning six Serie A's, two Coppa Italia's, one UEFA Champions League and more he moved to Bologna to play out his career. He was regarded as the best left back of his generation and even now he is thought to be one of the best ever so it was no surprise that he also had a great International career. He was part of the legendary 1982 World Cup team that won the World Cup alongside other Juve legends such as Dino Zoff and Claudio Gentile. In his Italy career he made 73 appearances captaining the side ten times and he even holds the record of most international goals for a defender with nine. He ended his International playing career in 1987 but in 2012 aged 54 he resumed it as the manager of the National Women's Side which comes to no surprise as he is a man for the girls.
