About Francesco "Ciccio" Graziani

Francesco "Ciccio" Graziani (born 16 December 1952) is an Italian football manager and former football player who played as a forward.[1]

He began his career with Arezzo in 1970, and later joined Torino in 1973, where he remained until 1981, winning a Serie A title in 1976 and the Capocannoniere title as the Serie A top goalscorer in 1977; with 122 total goals scored for Torino, he is the seventh-highest scorer in the history of the Torinese club behind Valentino Mazzola (123). He subsequently moved to Fiorentina, where he narrowly missed out on the Serie A title in his first season, and later also played for Roma between 1983 and 1986, winning two Coppa Italia titles and reaching the 1984 European Cup Final. He later spent two seasons with Udinese, before ending his career with Australian club APIA Leichhardt in 1988.

At international level, he won the 1982 FIFA World Cup with the Italian national team, and also managed fourth-place finishes at the 1978 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 1980. With 23 official goals, he is the ninth-highest all-time scorer for the Italian national team (tied with Christian Vieri).

He is the father of Gabriele, who was also a professional footballer.
