Maurizio Ganz (born October 13, 1968 in Tolmezzo, Italy) is a former Italian football striker.

Club career[edit]

Ganz started his career at Sampdoria in 1985. He later helped Parma to promotion from Serie B in 1989–90 season. When he played for Inter Milan, Ganz scored 36 goals from 68 appearances and was a feared goalscorer.

Ganz moved to AC Milan in 1997. In his first season he won the Scudetto with them and was very influential, but in his later season he spent a lot of his time on the bench because Alberto Zaccheroni, AC Milan manager at that time, had other star players like Oliver Bierhoff, George Weah, Andriy Shevchenko, Leonardo, and Zvonimir Boban. Although he did score a priceless hat-trick against Inter in a cup tie that will always be remembered. He later went on loan to Venezia and Atalanta before eventually moving on. Finished with an impressive record of 204 goals in 469 games.

International career[edit]

Ganz received two call-ups for the Italian national team in 1993, but did not gain an international cap.

He played one game and scored a hat-trick for Padania, an unofficial national team that competes in the Viva World Cup.


His son Simone Andrea (born 1993) is a forward who is currently part of the AC Milan Primavera.
