Ciro Ferrara

(0 votes)
Full Name : Ciro Ferrara
Date Of Birth: February 11, 1967
Place of Birth: Naples, Italy
Height: -
Position: Central defender
National Career: 1987-2000
Caps: 49 (0)

Ciro Ferrara (born February 11, 1967) is an Italian former football defender, who spent most of his career at Juventus. He retired from football after the 2004-05 season.
A native of Naples, Ferrara started his career at SSC Napoli before moving to Juventus in 1994. He became captain soon after joining the team, and soon became one of the most experienced and decorated players, winning seven Serie A championships (five with Juventus, two with Napoli - this excludes the 2004/05 title taken away from Juventus due to the match-fixing scandal), two Italian Cups (one with each team), three Italian Super Cups (two with Juventus, one with Napoli) and several European competitions (including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup, Intercontinental Cup and European Super Cup).
When playing at SSC Napoli he played with football genius Diego Maradona. He even lived nextdoor to him at the time he played at Napoli.
Since 2000, Ferrara's role on Juventus declined; although he was an experienced and dominating defender, he generally played as a substitute—his role as captain was taken over by fellow Italian Alessandro Del Piero. In 1996-97, one of his peak seasons, he scored four goals in 32 Serie A competitions, while also being capped eight times internationally. Ironically, his first professional match, while at Napoli, was played against Juventus (it was a 0-0 draw).

International Career

For Italy, Ferrara was capped 49 times and played one game each at the 1990 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2000. His brilliance however was never truly realised at international level despite this impressive tally of caps. There are two reasons for this. First of all Italy had a host of other world class players in his position that often blocked his route. These include Franco Baresi, Alessandro Costacurta, Mauro Tassotti, Pietro Vierchowod, Riccardo Ferri, Giuseppe Bergomi, Paolo Maldini, and later in his career Fabio Cannavaro, and Alessandro Nesta. Secondly Ferrara was very unfortunate with injuries. This was most notable in the build up to the 1998 World Cup in France. Ferrara, aged 31 at the time, was at the peak of his career, and had just had 3 superb seasons at Juventus. In 96-97 and 97-98 he was quite possibly the best defender in Italy, and he was a regular in the Italy line-up. However Ferrara suffered a serious injury several weeks before the World Cup and missed the tournament. He was replaced by Cannavaro who had a superb world cup. From this time on Ferrara was a reserve for Italy whereas Cannavaro went on to achieve legendary status. Had Ferrara not suffered this injury, many believe he would have been one of the stars of France '98 as he was in the peak of his career. For this reason he is not so well-known outside his native-country, but within Italy he is regarded as just another in a long-line of world class Italian defenders.
Ciro Ferrara was part of the Italian technical staff for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. After the World Cup success he later become part of Juventus' staff with former defending team mate Gianluca Pessotto who is also part of the staff at Juventus.

Trivia

Ferrara is renowned for his excellent singing voice, which can be heard on the Juventus squad's recording of the Lucio Battisti classic 'Il Mio Canto Libero'.

I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never
found any interesting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your article seem to be running off the
screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web
browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Cheers

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I've either written myself
or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is
popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways
to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of
it!
