Brought into the capital club in 1998, Franco Baldini was handed the tough task of turning the constantly underachieving Roma into a success and he managed to do so within his third year at the club.
After finishing outside the top three in his first two seasons, the Reggello-born sporting director took action and sacked Zdenek Zeman at the end of the 1998-1999 season; replacing him with Fabio Capello.
"I chose Capello to win and to provide the change that the fans expect. Capello is a winner and I believe this,” Sensi’s daughter, Rosella Sensi, noted upon his arrival.
Capello’s and Baldini’s joining of forces would be a match made heaven as it erupted the start of a long and fruitful career path together.
