Calcio legend Luigi Radice dies

Italian football legend Luigi Radice, who led Torino to their last Scudetto, has died at the age of 83.

Radice won three Scudetti with Milan as a player and was part of the Rossoneri side who became Italy’s first-ever European Cup champions in 1963.

He then guided Toro to what remains their only Serie A title since the Superga disaster in 1976.

‘Gigi’, who also coached the likes of Fiorentina, Bologna and Inter, was an early proponent of pressing and zonal marking.
