Noughties Nines: Luca Toni – Italy’s great late bloomer

Luca Toni scored goals at each stop of a truly unique career, one which saw him become both a literal and figurative giant of Italian football.
Far from a forward destined for greatness during the infancy of his career, Toni’s route to stardom was a slow burner, a trail blazed initially in the lower leagues of Italy before earning his big break.
Unfashionable and often unrefined, he was a traditional centre-forward in the truest sense, one who came alive inside the penalty area but cared little for events outside of it.

Toni’s career lasted for more than two decades and saw him change clubs on no less than 16 occasions, a footballing nomad who earned his stripes in modest environments before conquering the highest levels of the game.
Toni was 23 when he made his Serie A debut, having already represented six clubs across the lower divisions before his top-flight bow with Vincenza.
In typical Toni fashion, he spent just one season with the club before moving to Brescia, where he featured alongside Roberto Baggio and Pep Guardiola and enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in 2001/02.
He scored 13 league goals and finished as Brescia’s leading scorer, but was unable to build on that promising campaign during an injury-hit second season, in which he scored just twice.
Once again he was on the move and chose to drop back down a division, joining an ambitious Palmero side who had agonisingly missed out on promotion the previous season.
