    a Puzzle - Baggio,Batistuta or other player?

    There is a mystery I'm not sure about the answer:

    "In my youth I was a world champion,
    And as an adult I won many titles also
    My time at Inter, I prefer to forget,
    And yet I am a legend in Italy
    Who am I?"

    Is it Baggio,Batistuta or other player?

    Let's dissect this piece by piece. What do we know? It's a player that had a bad, short time at Inter and has won a world cup young, and club titles at an older age. We also know he is also a legend in Italy.

    Can't be Batistuta because he didn't win a world cup. Can't be Tardelli because he didn't win a world cup young. instead, let's try and see if it's an italian player (which is probable)

    Naming all italian players that had at one period in time worn the Inter jersey and won a world cup: matrix, grosso, peruzzi, pirlo in 2006 - none of them were young when they won it, bergomi, collovati, marini, oriali, bordon, altobelli, tardelli, causio in 1982 - only bergomi was young and he hardly had a forgettable time at Inter (and he didn't win many more titles older than he did younger)

    Locatelli, olmi, rava, bertoni, biavati, colaussi, and chizzo were the only italian players under 25 in 1938, and the ones that played for Inter (olmi, locatelli) didn't win much after they left us (locatelli won both of his scudetti as an inter player, although he spent 9 years after leaving inter at Juve - olmi played 107 matches in an inter shirt and won nothing after he left us). there are a few others (ceresoli, meazza, ferrari, ferraris) that weren't young (u25) when they became world champion, ruling them out...

    that narrows it down to a non-italian serie a legend...

    I think it's Mazzarri, he won the Coppa Italia and he's obviously a legend.

    Maybe Chivu, the romanians on FIF definately think he was one of the best players of his generation.

    Unless the World Champion in his youth means an U20 World Cup or something.
