Carlo Carcano (Italian pronunciation: [ˈkarlo ˈkarkano]; 26 February 1891 – 23 June 1965) was an Italian footballer and manager who played as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Carcano was born in Varese. As a player, he was a one club man, playing for Alessandria.

International career[edit]

At international level, Carcano also represented Italy on 5 occasions between 1915 and 1921, scoring once.

Managerial career[edit]

After he retired from playing, Carcano moved into management to much acclaim. He led Juventus to four consecutive league titles; the first of only two managers in Italian football history (alongside Massimiliano Allegri) to win four in a row.[1] He later also managed the Italian national football team.

He was suddenly removed from the Juventus club in December 1934 in order to stifle a homosexual scandal in which he was involved by elements of society hostile to him. He remained on the edge of the football world for a decade.

Personal life[edit]

Carcano died in Sanremo, aged 74, on 23 June 1965.

In the same season the club won also Coppa Italia of Promozione Liguria and the title of Champion of Promozione Liguria.

The current president is Renato Bersano, while the coach is Valentino Papa.
