The team of José

Juan José Pizzuti was one of the great glories of Racing Club, both as a player and as a technician. On the day of his birth, our homage.


Argentine football has great glories of all times, which will remain forever in the hearts of fans. Juan José Pizzuti is one of the greatest idols ofRacing Club , the team where he left his mark as a player and as a technician. On the anniversary of his birth, we remember him.

Born in the City of Buenos Aires on May 9, 1927, Juan José Pizzuti started his sports career in Banfield , where he debuted in 1946. He was one of the few footballers to play 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, in which he debuted in 1952. It was there that his striker prowess unfolded in all its glory.

Until 1962, he played 215 games and, with his 118 goals, is the secondtop scorer in the history of the club . He was champion with the Academy in 1958 and 1961. Pizzuti also contributed his own to the Argentine national team. He played with the national shirt on 12 occasions, in which he scored 4 goals. He was champion of the American Cup in 1959.

The team of José

Once retired, his talent went from the field of play to the bank. He became technical director and returned to Racing 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 unbeaten matches, the 66 championship, the 67 Libertadores Cup and — most importantly — the Intercontinental Cup against Celtic in Glasgow (Scotland), a feat with which Racing became the first Argentine team to be worldchampion at club level. The “José team” won absolutely everything.

Juan José Pizzuti left this world not long ago, at 92 years old. But the glory that led to the club will remain forever in the memory of all his fans.
