Demetrio debuted at the age of 17 during the season 1988/89 and gained a lead role with Mr. Capello in 1991/92, season in which he won the League Title. Director and mainstay of the midfield, Albertini has had a great insight into the game: his feet dictated always the times and ways of the line of attack, this is the reason why everyone call him the “Metronome”. Other than shines for his technical qualities he is famous for his fair-play on the pitch. With the rossoneri he have won five League Titles, two UEFA Champions League, two UEFA Supercus, a European(South American Cups and three League Supercups.

In Brazil he was called Mazzola for his great resemblance with Valentino Mazzola of the great Tourin. José Altafini arrives at the A.C.

After two great seasons, where he shows his talent, Baggio is bought by Fiorentina FC in the 1985. His first year with the violet jersey is not easy due to a serious injury who will bring him to postpone, on September 21th 1986, his debut in Serie A during the match Fiorentina – Sampdoria 2-0.
