Desc There were riots on the streets of Florence when Fiorentina fans learned that their beloved Roberto Baggio was to be sold to bitter rivals Juventus. The outrage was somewhat understandable, given that the No.10 was one of most the extravagantly gifted players Italy had ever produced. However, the Viola decided to deal after Juventus offered a world-record fee for an iconic figure who would come to be known as ‘Il Divino Codino’ (‘The Divine Ponytail’) due to his famous hairstyle and silky skills.
