Netflix have released the trailer for their drama about Roberto Baggio’s life and career, titled Baggio: The Divine Ponytail.
It is a dramatisation of the Italy international’s experiences, from childhood through to superstardom, the Ballon d’Or and the USA ’94 World Cup.
Netflix have now released the trailer and given a start date of May 26.
It will focus on the 22 years of his career, including controversies such as the move from Fiorentina to Juventus and clashes with various coaches.
Baggio as an adult will be played by Romulus actor Andrea Arcangeli, while the director is Letizia Lamartire.
This is not the only drama based on the life and career of a football player in Italy, as Sky Sport Italia will air their series on Francesco Totti later this month.
There is a generation of people who were raised by Football Italia who are going to be *very* into this...— Netflix UK & Ireland (@NetflixUK) March 3, 2021
