Del Piero to be Hall of Famer

Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero and Milan hero Ruud Gullit will be inducted into the Italian football Hall of Fame, the FIGC has announced.

Every year since 2011, 10 names have been inducted into the Hall of Fame in the categories of Italian player, foreign player, Italian Coach, Italian director, referee, Italian veteran and female Italian player.

There is also an ‘In Memoriam’ category featuring names such as Valentino Mazzola, Artemio Franchi and Cesare Maldini.

Today the FIGC has announced the inductees for 2017, with Del Piero to enter into to the Hall of Fame.

The former Italian international won the World Cup in 2006, and is Juve’s all-time top-scorer and appearance-maker.

Ruud Gullit, who won three Scudetti and two European Cups with Milan will be inducted as this year’s foreign legend, with Bruno Conti in as the veteran.

Osvaldo Bagnoli is the new addition in the Coaches section, with his most notable achievement the 1985 Scudetto win with Verona.
