Riccardo Ferri (Crema, August 20, 1963 ) is an Italian former soccer player who played central defender throughout his lengthy career with FC Internazionale (widely known as Inter Milan), and his country’s national team.
Ferri was part of Inter’s youth sector since the age of 12 and made his debut in Serie A on October 11th, 1981 against Cesena, when he was 18 years old. Two years later he became a starter and wore Inter’s jersey for thirteen consecutive seasons, totalling 418 appearances. Today he is the 12th all time most capped player for Inter, after Esteban Cambiasso. He won the Serie A title and the Italian Super Cup in 1989 and the UEFA Cup twice (1990-1991, 1993-1994), under the guidance of Giovanni Trapattoni. In 1994 he moved to Sampdoria, alongside his teammate Walter Zenga, in the negotiations that led Gianluca Pagliuca to Inter. He retired in 1996 after playing two seasons with Sampdoria. With Inter he scored 8 goals and appeared 418 times: 290 in the League, 62 in the European Cup, 66 in the Italian Cup.
A couple of years after his Serie A debut, Ferri continued to show impressive aptitude in the sport, which earned him a coveted spot on the national squad that represented Italy in the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. He went on to win the Serie A record title, the Italian Super Cup in 1989, and the UEFA Cup twice (1990-1991, 1993-1994) under the guidance of world renowned Giovanni Trapattoni. Ferri played on the national team during the UEFA European Championship of 1988 and the 1990 FIFA World Cup, where Italy was third after the famous semi-final match of Italy vs Argentina in which Ferri had the trying task of marking Diego Maradona and Claudio Caniggia.
