    Gabriele "Lele" Oriali

    72656.jpg

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Let me guess, according to wiki?

    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!

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

    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?

    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...

    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.

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


    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?

    will you stop with the wiki shit please?!

    Lele Oriali has rescinded his contract with Inter after leaving the club in the summer.


    Inter 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.

    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.
