Alessandro Scanziani Wikipedia
Alessandro Scanziani (born 23 March 1953 in Verano Brianza) is an Italian professional football coach and a former player, who played as a midfielder.
Scanziani began his career at Meda before spending a season at Livorno. Three seasons at Como followed, in which he won promotion to Serie A. Although he impressed as a skilful midfielder with an eye for goal, this could not prevent Como from being relegated. Scanziani joined Internazionale a year later and played for two seasons.
A move to Ascoli in 1979 saw him form an outstanding midfield partnership with Gianfranco Bellotto and Adelio Moro. This trio accounted for a large share of Ascoli's goals over the next two seasons and led the side to a finish of 5th in 1980, the club's highest-ever placing.
He moved to Sampdoria in 1981 and helped the side to promotion, and played alongside Liam Brady in the team's midfield in Serie A. He later played for Genoa and Arezzo.
