Argentine football has great glories of all time, which will remain forever in the hearts of fans. Juan José Pizzuti is one of the top idols of Racing Club , the team where he left his mark as a player and as a coach. On the anniversary of his birth, we remember it.
Born in Buenos Aires on May 9, 1927, Juan José Pizzuti began his sports career in Banfield , where he debuted in 1946. He was one of the few players who played for River and Boca. However, José — or Tito, as they also knew him — will be remembered forever as one of the great legends of Racing , a team in which he debuted in 1952. It was there that his prowess as a striker unfolded in all its glory.
Until 1962, he played 215 matches and, with his 118 goals, is the second top scorer in the history of the club . He was a champion with the Academy in 1958 and 1961. Pizzuti also contributed his thing to the Argentine national team . He played with the national jersey on 12 occasions, in which he scored 4 goals. He was champion of the Copa America in 1959.
Once retired, his talent went from the playing field to the bank. He became a technical director and returned to Racing , in that position, in 1965. It was then that he wrote one of the most remembered pages in the history of the club. His team won everything: 39 undefeated matches, the 66 championship, the Copa Libertadores of 67 and — most importantly — the Intercontinental Cup against Celtic Glasgow (Scotland), with which Racing became the first Argentine team to be world champion at club level. The “Jose team” won absolutely everything.
Juan José Pizzuti left this world not so long ago, at 92 years old. But the glory he brought to the club will forever remain in the memory of all his fans.
