The Late Greatest Player Giorgio Chinaglia

This past week, 65-year-old Giorgio Chinaglia passed away from a second heart attack at his home in Florida. He was known for playing for Italy and S.S. Lazio and has made an appearance in 1974 FIFA World Cup. Back in 1976, the greatest player signed a contract to play for the New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League. In his entire stay for the team, he has established scoring 193 goals in 213 games.

The news of his death was announced and confirmed through a twitter message from Milan executive Umberto Gandini. Everyone was really shocked at the news. The place for the wake is now being prepared and cleaned up-from roof with gutter brush up to floors. There’s still no announcements for the date of the funeral but hopefully it will be open to the public so fans and friends can come by and visit the late Chinaglia.
