Osvaldo Bagnoli (born 3 July 1935 in Milan) is a former Italian football coach and player who played as a midfielder.

Managing career[edit]

During his long and illustrious career, Bagnoli is best remembered for being the coach which led an underdog Verona side to its first (and so far the only) Serie A title during the 1984–85 season.[1][2]

He has also coached a number of other Serie A teams throughout his career, including Genoa and Inter.

In the 1990–91 season, Bagnoli took Genoa to fourth place in the final league standings in his first year in charge; it was the team's best finishing position in the top Italian division for more than 50 years.
