Eraldo Monzeglio (5 June 1906 – 3 November 1981) was an Italian football (soccer) defender.

Monzeglio was born in Vignale Monferrato, in the province of Alessandria (Piedmont).

In his nineteen-year career, which lasted from 1924 to 1943, he played for Casale, Bologna (where he was victorious in the 1928-29 championship) and Roma.[1] For the Italian national team he won two World Cup finals, in 1934 and 1938.

Monzeglio later became a coach, managing from 1941 to 1973 the teams of A.S. Roma, Pro Sesto, Napoli, Sampdoria, Juventus, Lecco and Chiasso, in Switzerland. He died at 75 years old.
