† Appearances (Goals).
He is most famous for the Turone's goal. The goal he scored in a crucial league game against league-leading Juventus F.C. for second-placed A.S. Roma was disallowed as the linesman ruled he was offside. The game ended 0–0 and Juventus eventually clinched the title.
Even though later video replay proved he was onside, Carlo Sassi, sport commentator on Italian TV at that time, admitted 33 years later in a radio show on Radiodue (Italian radio) that the goal was irregular and that the decision of the referee was correct. As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport it seems that the slow motion photograms were falsified by the RAI TV Studios in Rome against Juventus to twist the truth.
