Giovanni Trapattoni: His angry speech 25 years ago changed the language

His angry speech went down in football history: Bayern coach Giovanni Trapattoni lost his nerve at a press conference 25 years ago. It didn’t have a sporting effect – but it brought the Italian a high profile.

Giovanni Trapattoni still seems somewhat in control when he arrives at the press conference on March 10, 1998 on Säbener Strasse in Munich. Only a few from his immediate environment know how much the FC Bayern coach is seething. At least the whole of football Germany knows a few minutes less – after an incomparable outburst of anger on the open stage that went down in history.
