Style of play
A courageous, spectacular and athletic shot-stopper, Olivieri is regarded as one of Italy's greatest ever goalkeepers; throughout his career, he was known in particular for his reflexes, intelligence, and ability to rush off his line, which earned him the nickname il Gatto Magico (the magic cat).
