Giorgio Morini (born 11 October 1947) is an Italian former football manager and player, who played as a midfielder. As a player, Morini was part of the A.C. Milan team that won the 1978–79 Serie A title. He also coached the Italian football team Milan for part of the 1996–97 season.
Born in Carrara, Morini started his career with Internazionale FC during the 1967–68 season, but never played a game for the side. The following year he moved to A.S. Varese 1910, spending four seasons with the club. He made his Serie A debut against Cagliari on 6 October 1968.
After moving to A.S. Roma in 1972, Morini made a name for himself, representing the capital side for the next four seasons. In 1976, he earned a contract with A.C. Milan, spending another four seasons there, and winning the Scudetto in 1979.
Morini was linked to the 1980 Totonero illegal Italian football gambling scandal, and was suspended from play for ten months.
Giorgio Morini took up coaching, once his active career came to an end, leading youth-teams to glory, primarily at Italian club A.C. Milan. When Oscar Washington Tabarez was fired from the Rossonero senior side in 1997, Morini took over for a short period during the 1996–97 Serie A season; that was his first and, until now, last run as a coach of a top-flight side.
