Parma, 27 September 2019 – Ahead of the Crociati’s next match, Parma vs. Torino, we look back on the career of a player who played for both sides: Diego Fuser.
Growing up in Turin, he progressed up through the Primavera side and eventually earned a First Team call-up, making 49 appearances until the end of the eighties, when he was bought by AC Milan. He arrived at the Rossoneri in one of the club’s most successful periods, as they won the Scudetto, the European Cup and the European Super Cup all in Fuser’s time there.
His spell at Milan saw an interim of a year on loan to Fiorentina, where he made 32 appearances and scored eight goals. He then returned to Milan for another season before moving on to Lazio on a permanent basis. Fuser spent a long time with the Biancocelesti, wearing the shirt until 1998 (242 appearances and 42 goals) and winning the Coppa Italia.
He then signed for Parma in the summer of 1998. He wore our colours until 2001, recording 86 appearances and 10 goals and being a part of the squad to win three cups in 100 days (Coppa Italia, UEFA Cup and Italian Super Cup).
He spent the period from 2001 to 2003 at Roma, before returning to Turin for one more season. Fuser then began his time in amateur football between 2004 and 2012, playing for Canelli (with Gianluigi Lentini) for 4 years, then Saviglianese, then Canelli once again, followed by Nicese and Colline Alfieri.
Diego Fuser made 25 appearances and scored 3 goals for the Italian National Team, taking part in the 1996 European Championships along the way.
