Football in mourning, goodbye to coach Francesco Scorsa: he coached Catanzaro, Messina and Vigor Lamezia


By John

Is dead Francesco Scorsa, Calabrian football manager (he was born in Soverato), at the age of 76. For some time, Scorsa, who died in the hospital in Bologna, lived in Cesena and was a well-known face of Italian football and in particular from Calabria with an important past as a footballer and coach. THEIn Serie B he coached Catanzaro (1985-86 season) and Messina (1989-90 season). In 1991-92 he coached Vigor Lamezia in Serie C2 leading the green-and-whites to first place for a long time during the first round.

His career as a defender was moderate, or rather as a libero as was the custom at the time, which had its apogee in Ascoli (almost 150 appearances in Serie A with the team coached by Carlo Mazzone, a legend of Italian football who also died today )).
