It was in 1982-23 that Roma had won the Serie A for the second time but since then it was a dry spell for the Italian giants. Fabio Capello arrived at Roma after his sacking at Real Madrid in 1999. He was desperate to prove himself and he knew what he wanted. Against the will of the Roma President, he wanted the 30 year old Argentine striker Gabriel Batistuta. Paying £23.5 m for a striker past his prime looked silly but it did pay off brilliantly. Gabriel’s arrival at Roma changed the morale at the club and his link up with the talented Francesco Totti and the amazing poacher Vincenzo Montella created chaos in the opposition defense. He scored 20 goals in his debut season at Roma and helped them win the Serie A title for the third time in their history. Since then, Roma have never been able to win the Serie A title again.
