Top 5 Best Italian Basketball Coaches

Top 5 Best Italian Basketball Coaches

In basketball, a coach can be almost as important as the players- or even more so. The coach’s main responsibility is to motivate his players and help them achieve their fullest potential as players, whilst not omitting to take into account areas in which improvements may be required. Specific skill sets and goals are important, and, as these men have shown, a good coach can make a team one of the best in the world. The following are the top 5 Italian coaches for the sport:

Federico Pasquini

Pasquini, born in Ferrara in 1973, is a basketball coach for Dinamo Basket Sassari, and holds the titles of general manager and technician for that team currently.

Pasquini began his coaching career in the years 2000/2001 as a deputy at Castelmaggiore. After these he headed over to Orlandina Basket, and played assistant to BC Ferrara in his city from 2004 to 2005. After transitioning to Castelfiorentino from 2007 to 2009, he headed to Naples in 2010, and at the beginning of the 2011 season, he accepted the call to Sardinia by Stefano Sardara. Pasquini led the team glory, and took the reins the following year.

Pasquini is one of the main protagonists of the extraordinary rise of Dinamo Basket Sassari over the last five years, and on the 7th of March 2016 he replaced Marco Calvani as the head coach. He has since been confirmed as head coach once more and now plays the double role of coach and general manager with aplomb.

The online betting NZ sites that offer markets for Italian basketball matches have many punters who are grateful for the excellent work that Federico Pasquini has put in with what is now held to be one of the best Italian basketball teams around.

Gennaro Di Carlo

Gennaro Di Carlo was born in Santa Maria Capua Vetere on the 29th of August 1973, and is the current coach for the second ranked Italian basketball team, Orlandina Basket.

Spiro Leka

Spiro Leka is the coach for the Unione Sportiva Victoria Libertas Pallacanestro Italian basketball team, and is enjoying a contract from the 1st of July this year, through to the 30th of June 2018.


Maurizio Buscaglia

Maurizio Buscaglia is the head coach for the Aquila Basket Trento Italian basketball team, ranked fourth in the league, and he was born on the 9th of April in Bari, Italy, making him 48-years old. He has been coaching since 1986, and has many career highlights to his name, including the Italian Second Division champion status in 2013, the Italian League Best Coach award in 2015, and the EuroCup Coach of the Year award of 2016. His focus on performance and sports psychology makes him one of the best in the business.

Simone Pianigiani

Simone Pianigiani was named the chief coach of Olimpia Milano, the fifth best basketball team currently operating in Italy, in the summer of this year. He was born on the 31st of May 1969 and grew up in Mens Sana. He spent his youth training young people until he became assistant coach to Caesar Pancotto, and the rest, as they say, is history!

These five coaches are currently at the helm of the best basketball teams in all of Italy, and the admiration and affection in which they are held is no small testament to the huge amount of dedication and work they have put in to the game of basketball.
