Cagliari vs Fiorentina

THE MATCH

The hero of the two islands: in Great Britain a Premier, in Sardinia five miracles, with three promotions and two salvations. There was no match, the protagonist of Cagliari-Fiorentina (3-2 for the Viola who secure eighth place and arithmetically conquer one place in Europe again next year while awaiting the Conference final) tonight at Domus was Claudio Ranieri, the gentleman coach who sat for the last time on the bench of a club team. Closing his career (but the possibility of coaching a national team remains open) where his first successes as a coach in a professional league began. The last move? Throwing a kid onto the field, the Zambian Kingstone Mutandwa. And “get” him to score the provisional 2-1 goal, the first in Serie A. Festa from start to finish. First the standing ovation and almost two minutes of uninterrupted applause: Ranieri’s last match in Serie A began like this. Then a long and emotional hug with Italiano. And then the group photo with the photographers who have always immortalized him. In the meantime, from the curve here is the banner almost fifty meters long: external gratitude for a great man, thank you mister. And again the choirs all for him.

And that “we will rise again, Claudio Ranieri said it” that everyone in Cagliari has known for thirty-six years, since the coach landed in Sardinia. The whole stadium applauds him and he doesn’t want to stop: even the players on the pitch and the referee clap their hands. And it is he, Ranieri, who, to remove himself from the spotlight, with a nod makes the referee understand: come on, let’s start this match. He, wearing a red and blue shirt, vest and tie, focuses on the race, as he always has. And who knows what’s really going through his head. From the stands it is almost difficult to appreciate what is happening on the pitch. It’s a day of tributes: in the 11th minute long applause for Gigi Riva, in the 13th minute for Astori, an unforgettable ex of both teams. It is almost impossible, given the climate, to appreciate the ideas of Ikone or Luvumbo, or to dwell on the duel between Lapadula and Ranieri, the coach’s namesake. Because the game to watch is on the bench: it is that of the veteran coach who stops with the routine and the obscure work of filming training on Tuesday, the double session on Thursday and the pre-match press conference and the emotions of the matches. “The one against Fiorentina is my last match as coach of Cagliari and of a club – he also confirmed in an interview with Sky – as I have already said in the past, if the proposal from a national team comes I will take it into consideration”. Hero in the islands, his only real regret was not having become a prophet in his homeland.

Cagliari vs Fiorentina

But with his hometown team, Roma, he almost played a trick on Mourinho and his treble. But wherever he passed, he left good memories: Naples, Florence, Valencia, Madrid, London, Munich etc. etc. Thirty-eight years of coaching career (but before that he had been a great defender and captain between Roma, Catanzaro, Catania, Palermo), from his debut in Lamezia Terme to this evening’s Cagliari-Fiorentina. A balanced match with the Viola looking for European points while waiting for the Conference final and Cagliari, already safe, who doesn’t want to ruin his coach’s party and comes close to scoring three times in the first half with Luvumbo and Deiola. However, Fiorentina (who had already come close to making it 0-1 with Belotti) took the lead with a curling shot from Bonaventura in the 39th minute. Lapadula equalizes before the break, but it doesn’t count: he’s offside. Deiola’s equalizer with a header in the 20th minute of the second half was first canceled and then validated. Then the Rossoblu overtook with Kingstone Mutandwa. Then the counter comeback with Gonzalez and Arthur on a penalty after a warning from the VAR in the 103rd minute. In the middle a goal canceled out by Lapadula. For Ranieri the celebration continues even after the match. The entire audience remains in the stands for the final tribute to perhaps the most loved coach of all time together with Scopigno.
