  • Midfield Maestro

A fantastic attacking midfielder and number 10, slender and lanky, not much inclined to sacrifice, Gianni Rivera more than made up for his few shortcomings with incredible game vision, precise passes that dictated the pace of play thanks to his superior football IQ, and often finished in the goal thanks to his good nose for scoring. He was one of the greatest footballers of all time for AC Milan.
