Giorgio Barbolini Career:

Sold to Reggiana, he returned to Modena in the 195556 seasons, always in Serie B, collecting 30 appearances seasoned by the considerable loot of 13 goals. In the following championship he moved to Roma where he played 17 games in Serie A, then a very short interlude at Inter where he played only two matches in the Italian Cup, before his return to yellow and blue in the 195758 seasons, the first characterized by the Zenit denomination. For Barbolini two other decent championships, both in the cadet series, then in 1959 the move to Padua. In the ranks of the Biancoscudati, the Geminiano midfielder became a real flag, given that in the city of Santo he closed his career as a footballer in 1968, after having played 232 games in nine seasons.

He also had a brief period as a coach: in the unfortunate 197879 seasons he was part of the Modena technical staff as deputy, and in the last five games of that championship, which ended with relegation to C2, he was entrusted with the bench of the first team after the exoneration of Galbiati, who in turn had taken over Armando Cavazzuti. The two victories obtained against Alexandria and Spezia were not enough for salvation. Barbolini’s funeral home was set up in Terracielo, while the last farewell will be in the church of San Benedetto Abate at 9.30 on Tuesday. given that in the city of Santo, he closed his career as a footballer in 1968, after having played 232 games in nine seasons.
