Happy Birthday Donadoni

Today is the 54th birthday of Bologna Coach and former Milan midfielder Roberto Donadoni.

Born in Cisano Bergamasco, around an hour outside of Milan, the winger started his career with Atalanta.

Having helped the Orobici to win both Serie C1 and Serie B, Donadoni played in Serie A with the Bergamo side for two seasons before earning a move to Milan in 1986.

Following a fifth-placed finish in his first season with the Rossoneri, Arrigo Sacchi's side won the Scudetto in the 1987-88 campaign, with Donadoni a key man in the midfield.
