Villiam Vecchi Wikipedia
Born on December 28, 1948, in Scandiano, Italy, Vecchi played with AC Milan from 1967 to 1974 and joined Como in 1976.
In his five years with the club, Como endured a rollercoaster ride through Serie B and Serie C1 before making the top flight in 1980, where they remained as he departed after the 1980–81 campaign.
Como were relegated back to Serie B the following season.
Vecchi has the distinction of having trained both Dida and Gianluigi Buffon, who were two of the best goalkeepers in the world during the 2000s.
He coached the latter during a stint with Parma, under the helm of head coach Carlo Ancelotti, while he trained the former during his time with AC Milan, once again under Ancelotti.
