Inter legend as a player:

Italian Serie A champion in 1971, 1980 with Inter
Coppa Italia 1978 and 1982 with Inter
World champion in 1982 with Italian national team

...and also worked for us as director for 10 years.

I though that he deserves own tread.

He has been in news so much lately so I think it is also easier this way.

If you wanna have a vote for him deserving to be in La Grande Inter then do it.

Open to Oriali

Lele Oriali is not the most familiar name, but Rob Paton believes it’s the one to follow in this summer’s transfer market.

Lele Oriali is a wanted man. At a stage in the season when strategies and performance from the past year or two come under scrutiny at unsuccessful clubs and plans are drawn up for rectifying change in the summer, Oriali’s name drifts into focus. Sections of Inter’s support, who have watched a dreadful season unfold in front of them, have called for his return, as Fiorentina reportedly look to appease their support’s equal anger by bringing him in to replace dethroned sporting director Pantaleo Corvino.

Where general anticipation of the Italian summer transfer market may be centred on the likes of Carlos Tevez, Alexandre Pato and Alessandro Del Piero, attention is also on Oriali. Described by sections of the Italian media as a transfer guru, he is seemingly a proven talent in the position of sporting director and one whose CV argues somewhat convincingly that he can also work to any budget and under any number of superiors.

Whether or not working towards a specific project, both Inter and Fiorentina have demonstrated perhaps more than most in Italy over the past couple of seasons why the role of sporting director – one often derided and misunderstood in the UK – can be integral to Italian football. It is almost inarguable now that falling short in correct identification of targets and/or implementation of negotiations has been detrimental to on-pitch results for both teams.

Regardless of Coach changes, the Florence outfit have gone from being a relative Champions League regular until 2010 to relegation candidates this term, whilst the Milanese – 2010 treble winners – have endured a historically bad season with a countless number of unwanted landmarks. Yet, from almost 600 qualified sporting directors in the peninsula, Oriali’s is one of the few names being prominently pushed forward for both as they plan for change.

He is a man with links to both clubs. A member of the youth team at Inter during the club’s heyday in the 1960s with the prominence of La Grande Inter that won seven major titles in just four years, Oriali spent over a decade as an integral member of the Nerazzurri team of the 1970s. A hard-working, selfless and versatile midfielder, Oriali won two Scudetti with the club and the 1982 World Cup with Italy before spending the final few seasons of his career with Fiorentina. Despite an affinity shared with supporters from both La Beneamata and La Viola for his on-pitch contributions, the reason he is being targeted by fans of the former and management at the latter is because of his work since retiring.

Beginning at Bologna as sporting director in 1994, Oriali has developed a reputation for keen negotiation and channelled work in the transfer market. With the Felsinei he sourced the likes of Carlo Nervo, Francesco Antonioli and Michele Paramatti from lower-League relative obscurity to construct a side that not only won successive promotions from Serie C1 to A, but then achieved consecutive top-half finishes in the top flight. He also convinced Roberto Baggio to spend the 1997-98 season at the Renato Dall’Ara, before a single term with Parma in 1998 saw him bring the Ducali notable purchases in the form of Abel Balbo and Juan Sebastian Veron from Roma and Sampdoria respectively.

Then came his return to the blue half of San Siro in 1999, where he would spend 11 years in the role of technical director. Working with President Massimo Moratti, the late Giacinto Facchetti and sporting directors Giuliano Terraneo and then Marco Branca, Oriali is credited with a leading role in shaping Inter’s squad through the last decade.

The 60-year-old recently suggested himself that the only major transfer in this period that he did not work on was Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s 2009 departure, but that, with the now lambasted Branca in tow, every other deal – including Samuel Eto’o’s arrival as part of Ibra’s sale – had his stamp on it one way or another. Perhaps the biggest indicator of his success in identifying correct targets for the team came in the 2010 Champions League Final, when 10 of the 11 starters for Jose Mourinho’s side were Oriali purchases. During his 11 seasons, Inter won five Scudetti, three Coppa Italias, three Italian Super Cups and one European Cup.

That his departure from the club – after a falling out upon Amedeo Carboni’s arrival for the same role for Rafa Benitez in July 2010 – coincides with the beginning of Inter’s movement into a downward spiral has merely cemented the theory of Oriali’s competency in the market.

More than once has Oriali stated his desire to return to San Siro for a second go, but a difficult relationship with Branca, who Moratti reportedly wants to keep at the club in one capacity or another, has seen Fiorentina enter negotiations. La Viola, who on a side note are interestingly reluctant to work with Inter in the market, are apparently keen to pair him up with another prominent sporting director, Chievo’s Giovanni Sartori.

Such is Oriali’s track record, whilst Inter and Fiorentina fans may be praying for some eye-catching transfers to be made in the summer, their best hope for the best kind of deals may lie in who is negotiating for them. Indeed, Oriali’s may be the most important transfer of the summer market.

Not that I know so much about him other than that he was our director, but he surely deserves a thread here much more than the clown Branca.

Trantor

He was a always-running and spirited central midfielder, also full-back at the beginning of his career. He also was decent at scoring, with an average of a goal every 9 games. He got a killer instinct in Milan derbies, scoring 5 goals despite his defensive role.

Also a regular of the World-Cup winning Italian team in 1982, was sold to Fiorentina in 1983 where he got a significant wage increase.

No, it's not that i don't like Lele. But as a technical director? Why? It's like putting Materazzi there ffs. He was team manager when he was at Inter, had nothing to do with the technical stuff. He was replaced by Rafas cousin, Carboni, and now Cordoba has that role. Why would we like to bring him back as a technical directors is beyond me.

11 Feb 14, 14:46
And my 'defending' of Branca is misunderstood. I was never against him being sacked or i was in denial he had some shit moves post 2010. All i was saying is he should be given credit for his job pre 2010, his EXCELLENT job. And that he is far from the most responsible guy for this situation Inter is in.

false!

Lele was the mercato consultant and the link between the squad and mgmt, helping Fachetti,MM,Terraneo(the tech.director before Branca)and Branca later.

so yes he was involved in technical stuff!

Pajo
11 Feb 14, 14:57
Let me guess, according to wiki? :D

No he wasn't. He was TEAM MANAGER, the middleman between the players and the management. Later it was Carboni, and now it is Cordoba in that role. He was Market consultant only from 1999-2003. :) The only thing he was involved in when it comes to technical stuff, was to negotiate contract with the players.

Again, what has he done to warrant a role such as technical director? Be accused for more false passports? Or get some kind of suspension because of his temperamental character?

He didn't know shit about the passaports.What are you rubentino ffs?!and Baldini was the witness that Lele didn't know about that.
Better a passionate Orialli than a Branca who hide from the cameras!

and he was the mercato consultant ffs until Branca wanted him out!

and Lele is a Inter legend...gave 30 years of his life to Inter,Branca is hardly considered to be anything like that!

I was just saying. I know he said he didn't know, he was 'just' accused of it, but never found something very relevant. And passion yes, but as a director? Why? What will bring passion if you are a director? Getting pissed off while negotiating?


and he was the mercato consultant ffs until Branca wanted him out!

Branca wanted him out? What the hell are you talking? He was pushed away by RAFAEL FUCKING BENITEZ! Lele was pissed off at Branca for not standing out for him, but was quite like a pussy.

And NO, he was not involved in the deals, except few ones where he negotiated with the players themselves, NOT the teams or had any ideas for that matter. Why do you think he was involved in the market is beyond me... I can now edit his page on wiki saying he wanted to bring Schelotto as external adviser ffs...


and Lele is a Inter legend...gave 30 years of his life to Inter,Branca is hardly considered to be anything like that!

I can't argue with that. Oriali was and will be our legend, no matter what. Branca would've been if he didn't fuck up the last three yeas as well.


Lele>>>>>>>>Branca playing career wise and as a director for me

How do you know that, when Oriali hasn't been a director, but a team manager? :D


In the end, i never really compared them. It was YOU who brought Branca into discussion. All i am saying is, even tho Oriali huge part of the Inter's history, he should remain as history, not taking a job he had never had before. You want to ruin his reputation among the fans? How the fuck is he going to learn to be technical director at that age?

JJM
11 Feb 14, 16:58
will you stop with the wiki shit please?!

Lele Oriali has rescinded his contract with Inter after leaving the club in the summer.


Inter (http://www.goal.com/en/teams/italy/2/internazionale-news) and former transfer consultant Gabriele Oriali have terminated their rapport by mutual consent, the club said in statement on Friday.

Oriali left his post as transfer consultant at the club in the summer, and back then he claimed he was "ousted".

Now though, Inter have confirmed the division. And a statement on their official website reads:

"FC Internazionale and Gabriele Oriali announce that the long-standing contract between the two parties has been terminated by mutual consent.

"President Massimo Moratti and FC Internazionale thank Gabriele Oriali for his professionalism and sincere attachment to the Nerazzurri shirt in his many years at the club.

"Oriali progressed through the youth ranks at Inter before making the jump to the first team. He scored 43 goals in 392 appearances, winning two Scudettos and two Italian Cups. He ended his playing career at Fiorentina after winning the World Cup with Italy in 1982.

"He returned to Inter in 1999, taking on a number of different important roles. His long and successful period of collaboration culminated with the great triumphs of recent seasons."







Gabriele Oriali in Enciclopedia dello Sport:Successivamente diventa responsabile dell'area tecnica dell'Inter.

do I need to translate?!
Oriali si confessa: "Branca mi ha fatto fuori dall'Inter!"


this as well?!

and where did I say I want Lele to be our tech. director?! I just defended the guy and I'm trying to correct his role in the club...and yes I want him back but not as the tech.director...I want him to be the link between the squad and mgmt like he was back then.and he can help Ausilio too in the mercato.

Pajo
11 Feb 14, 17:43
I am well aware of what he said. I read it back then as well. And he said it year after he left. But it wasn't branca, if it was him, it would've been way earlier, not in 2010. He was replaced by RAFAEL BENITEZ COUSIN. Isn't that enough? After he left, many of the media were claiming he is pissed off at Branca for not vouching for him, but he just kept it silent. Year later, that Oriali interview came out. It's only natural he can bash branca, I'd do the same if my best friend is silent like a pussy instead of defending me, in any situation.

As for the rest.. I have nothing against him if he comes in the role he had before. It's obvious he'd do better job that Cordoba since he has more influence pretty much everywhere, and especially at the club. However, the whole fucking debate started when rumor came up as ORIALI TAKING BRANCAS PLACE. I said i don't want him as tehnical director and that Thohir listents to the fans too much. And you said i dont like oriali or shit like that. And I never said it, did i? :)

PS: he wasn't consultant once Branca took over as Technical, i am 100% sure because that was debated even before 2010. About his actual role in the team. I also talked to my friend, and i believe him way more than goal.com and wiki anyway. He said that Oriali was very important figure in the club, keeping the moral high, negotiating contracts with the players, standing out for them.. he also claimed that the bullshit that happened with Sneijder and co would've never happened with Oriali in the club. But as transfer guru? Nah. As Technical. Double nah.

ORIALI, 62 YEARS AS THE PRIDE OF INTER FC

Internazionale wishes club legend Gabriele Oriali a very happy birthday

MILAN – On the day he turns 62, we wish Gabriele Oriali many happy returns on behalf of all Interisti.

Born in Como on 25 November 1952, Oriali spent the majority of his career at Inter: thirteen seasons as a player (from 1970 to 1983), with 392 appearances and 43 goals, two league titles and two Coppa Italias, besides the 1982 World Cup with Italy, then a further 11 years as a club official (from 1999 to 2010), contributing to five Scudetti, three Coppa Italias, three Italian Super Cups and a Champions League.

It's an enviable track record and one which has rightly earned him a special place in Nerazzurri fans' hearts.

Oriali is currently working as team manager for the Italian national side but his name will forever remain inextricably linked to the black and blue of Inter. Years of hard slog in the Nerazzurri midfield, but also many, many moments of glory and triumph.

Happy birthday, Lele!

Football is contantly changing. If you want to be successul you have to evolve with the game. Some of you guys are still stuck in the 2000-2010 era. What worked back then is not going to work now.

How about we hire Lippi as our coach since he is worldcup winner? While we are at it, how about we re-sign all the players from the treble season and win another treble? Because you know, time has no effect on smeone's ability according to you guys.

Oriali has won everything there is to win with Inter and At 62, he is probably more concerned about his retirement plans than anything else. We need someone young and hungry with new ideas.

Hmmm, im a big unstabilsed company. Am i going to bring back the director who was hugely successful from a few years ago into the same role, or someone unproven because they are "young and hungry". Jesus this forum loves to jizz itself over young people. As i said, if Oriali still has it i dont care about his age.

A guest in the studios of SportItalia, the well-known agent Antonio Caliendo has said of his controversy over Sundays between Gabriele Oriali and Marco Branca: "Oriali has always been the man of the balance in the home of Inter. , Was a footballer who wanted Oriali, only after Branca intervened that he was not entirely convinced of the Brazilian buy-in. Oriali is a serious person, both at Inter and Mourinho and Mancini have talked to him in a great way. A professional who has done well in all the teams he was in. "

29 Apr 17, 05:16
Ronaldo your argument is he's part of the old management, but what you for some reason fail to see is he was only part of it whilst we were in a good place, his firing and our downfall happened around the same time. I'm not saying him leaving is the reason things went to shit obviously, but I am saying he isn't to blame for things going to shit. So hiring him, a guy who is remembered for being part of the amazing stuff and not for the bad isn't a bad idea. Don't blame him for something that happened after he left. Your other half of the argument is he is old, understandable but not everyone wants to retire, and even if he did in 5 years I wouldn't mind too much, that's an eternity in football, last time we were in champions league was 5 years ago and that feels like forever ago.

Exclusive: Oriali the beginning of Suning's Inter revolution

Inter are set to revolutionise their front office, we can exclusively reveal.

Reports linking former director Gabriele Oriali to his former club are very accurate indeed, Fabrizio Romano can confirm for CM.Com. In fact, he’s already received the Italian FA’s approval to quit his post with the national side and return to the San Siro.

The former midfielder was technical director from 1999 to 2010, and was one of the men responsible for helping the Nerazzurri win the Treble under Jose Mourinho.

Many fans see his departure (which Oriali attributed to much-reviled sporting director Marco Branca) as the beginning of the Nerazzurri’s problems.

Suning have other ideas, however: they want to work harder on the technical area: an assistant sporting director is also set to arrive, with Dario Baccin one of the big names. Also courted by Juventus, the current Palermo youth director has earned plaudits from everywhere.

Inter have contacted Baccin, and he would work on the youths being loaned out to other clubs, not to mention the actual academy and junior sides.

It appears that Roberto Samaden and Corrado Verdelli will stay, though the latter will probably get a bigger role. Piero Ausilio will still be in charge.

This is an important step. Our main problem is our Mgmt in recent years, and getting someone like Lele is good step to make things change.

I really like Nicola Cortese and hope he will come. He has done fantastic job in Southampton.

this is a fairly ridiculous argument. When you buy a company,y ou dont fire all of the management and replace them all. You work out systematically what the issues are. The guy who helps to bridge the gap between the board and the team is probably not the issue....

Says who? Are you trying to make shit up just to support your argument? Who's to say Oriali wasn't the center of our problems? I'm not saying he was but the thing is we don't know. That old management is old and wasn't successful so what could you possibly gain from hiring them back?

Again, I'm not saying Oriali was the problem or wasn't the problem. I'm just saying that he was part of an unsuccessful management and he is old. So why not bring in someone younger who might have new ideas? What's so hard to understand?!

Anyways, we are just going in circles here. I think I made my point, let's just agree to disagree.

Ronaldo your argument is he's part of the old management, but what you for some reason fail to see is he was only part of it whilst we were in a good place, his firing and our downfall happened around the same time. I'm not saying him leaving is the reason things went to shit obviously, but I am saying he isn't to blame for things going to shit. So hiring him, a guy who is remembered for being part of the amazing stuff and not for the bad isn't a bad idea. Don't blame him for something that happened after he left. Your other half of the argument is he is old, understandable but not everyone wants to retire, and even if he did in 5 years I wouldn't mind too much, that's an eternity in football, last time we were in champions league was 5 years ago and that feels like forever ago.

That's where you and I differ. Do you really think Inter was only mismanaged after 2010?! Inter was mismanaged waaay before that! Just because we won the treble doesn't mean everything was running smoothly.

Oriali helped sign players and helped with squad harmony. Those are 2 things we know were very good between the years he were here and 2 things we are really struggling with at the moment. So yes, bring him back. And it isnt really fair to call the old management unsuccessful. From a financial sense maybe, but a sporting sense it was our second most successful period in over 100 years. So yes, bring him back.

No, that's exactly the role that we are planning to bring him in for, though.

Sure, he might have been the centre of the problems. But then, so might any future hire. If people in the club are endorsing him - and presumably that extends to Ausilio, Zanetti, etc - then maybe people like him.

Oriali's role, I suspect, is not so central that he will make or break the team, but rather, he's a bit of 'lubricant'.


You're arguing that the CIO is a failure because the CFO and CEO fucked up. It just doesn't necessarily follow.

Their financial mismanagement is one of the main reasons for Inter's struggles, it took the team from treble winners to outside of European spots in three years. It seems for them short term success was traded for long-term viability, so is it shrewd to bring people in who might perpetuate that mentality? Why repeat the same mistakes? To clarify, I think short and long term success need to be worked towards at the same time. But if he comes here I wish him the best of luck the second time.

Oriali would have recommended a signing, said this is how much its going to cost and wait for the ok. Not his fault about the cash. But anyway, we need a strong figure between the team and management and i hope he can succeed here again.

That's such a generalization tho. Just cuz Moggi was a lying and manipulating prick, doesnt mean EVERYBODY in Juve's management were like him. C'mon now.
There's a reason he(Oriali) didnt get along with Branca...maybe he was opposed to some of that "corporate culture" therefore he (Oriali) got the boot.
Again, i dont see what the harm can be here. He did great at FIGC...players respect him, media respects him. He's a serious men with some values, and can add come discipline to this team.

Gabriele Oriali spoke about his appointment as the head of the Italian U21 delegation for the upcoming European Championships in Poland, whilst also discussing his thoughts about his comeback at Inter.

http://www.abbreviations.com/images/1661242_JIALO.png

The former Inter director admitted that he was: “a bit unprepared when Italy asked me to be the head of delegation for the U21’s but, of course, I was very pleased with the FIGC for choosing me. Then I leave for Inter with great enthusiasm. I hope to be able to offer my services to Inter to the fullest of my ability.”

Suning Could Bring In Oriali To Replace Sabatini

Suning could look to replace the recently departed Walter Sabatini with Gabriele Oriali according to a report from SportMediaset.

Around this time last year, Oriali was heavily linked with Inter with it being suggested he would join the management but his arrival ultimately never happened as Sabatini arrived as technical coordinator.

SportMediaset recall this time last year and report that “Everything was defined, the last meeting in Monza had fully convinced the Chinese property, the letter of resignation from the National team was all ready.

“Then, unexpectedly the move was off because of the arrival of Walter Sabatini and certainly not because between the two there was any incompatibility but rather because with the role played by the now former technical director of the Suning group, Oriali, who instead would have had to deal with the relationship between club and team and dictate the guidelines of the Nerazzurri market, was essentially not needed.“

We need to go after a sporting director with a good recent track record who is looking to take the next step in his career. Have a look at teams like Atalanta, Sampdoria, etc. It can’t be a coincidence that these teams keep making the right purchases one after another.

Lele was the only member of staff Mourinho thanked for having put together the treble winning side. I agree with your point though, I personally would love to see Lele come back but he may have been out of club football too long. If it was up to me, I'd bring him back as team manager with an input on transfers but I'd move hell and high water to get Pierpaolo Marino who isn't even tied to anyone at the moment.
