Stramaccioni who is who
Andrea Stramaccioni is 39 years old, born on 9 January 1976. His career as footballer lasted just one season (1994-1995) in Bologna and came to an end because of a serious knee injury. He studied Law at the Rome's Sapienza University, but his love for football drove him to follow a managerial career.
His first job was at Inter, which he took over in March 2012 following Claudio Ranieri, and he was promoted from the academies of the "Nerazzurri". Stramaccioni continued next season (2012-2013) at the helm of Inter Milan. At the end of that year he left the post after finishing in 9th place in Serie A.
After a year away from the benches, Stramaccioni returned in June 2014, for Udinese, from where he resigned last summer, having finished in 16th place in Serie A.
