The historic former sporting director of Messina Enzo Nucifora he passed away at the age of 78 after a long illness. Messina, but Marche by adoption, so much so that he resided in San Benedetto del Tronto, he was one of the most successful managers in the history of the so-called “provincial football”, winning around ten championships in his long career. An infinite curriculum for the lawyer Nucifora who, among others, also worked with Ancona, Sambenedettese, Chieti, Atletico Catania, Pescara, Taranto, Avellino, Catania and Udinese. In Messina he was a protagonist both in the 80s with the president Massimino and the coaches Scoglio and Zeman, and in 2010 as General Director for a fleeting experience under the management of Bruno Martorano alongside the Sports Director Pasquale Leonardor.
