Maurizio Gaudino (German pronunciation: [maʊˈʁɪtsi̯oː ɡaʊˈdiːnoː], Italian: [mauˈrittsjo ɡauˈdiːno]; born 12 December 1966) is a retired German football midfielder.[1] He is currently working as director of football for SSV Reutlingen 05.


He was capped five times for Germany in 1993 and 1994,[2] and was in their squad for the 1994 World Cup.

Gaudino played 294 Bundesliga games for Waldhof Mannheim, VfB Stuttgart, Eintracht Frankfurt and VfL Bochum.[3] He won the league title with Stuttgart in 1992. He also helped them to the 1989 UEFA Cup Final and got himself on the scoresheet in the first leg, although they ultimately lost to a Diego Maradona inspired Napoli.

In 1995, he was loaned out to Manchester City and helped the team end the season with some magnificent performances including a 3–2 victory over the league champions that year Blackburn Rovers. He scored three times in 20 league games, but City still finished 17th in the Premier League (just three places clear of relegation) after a promising early season run of form had hinted at a UEFA Cup place or even a push for the league title.

He transferred to Antalyaspor in 1999 and played for them until Antalyaspor's relegation to Second League A Category in 2001–02 season.

In 2006, Gaudino took part in a charity football match between England and Germany, based on the 1966 FIFA World Cup Final. In a game consisting of celebrities and former players, he was rugby tackled by politician Boris Johnson.[4]

Gaudino is son of Italian emigrants from Campania. His father was born in Orta di Atella while his mother is from Frattamaggiore. His son Gianluca is currently on the books of Chievo.[5]

On 11 May 2015, Gaudino was appointed as new director of football at SSV Reutlingen 05 valid from 1 July 2015.[6]
