Omar Sivori | 1957-1961

Postby PES Stats Database » 2008 Dec 10, 19:15

Nickname: "El Cabezón" ("The Big Head")
Club: Juventus


Growth type: Early/Lasting


INFO:

Spoiler: show
Born in San Nicolas, Argentina on 2 October 1935, Omar Sivori made his debut as a 17-year-old at River Plate. The Argentine striker, nicknamed “El Cabezón” (“The Big Head”), moved to Italy after winning two domestic titles with River Plate in 1955 and 1956, and in 1957 was transferred to Juventus for 160 million Italian lira (82,600 euros). At Juve Sivori won three “scudetti” (1958, 1960 and 1961) and two Coppa Italia trophies (1959, 1960). In the 1959/1960 season he finished up as the Serie A top scorer with 27 goals. Sivori was named European Footballer of the Year in 1961. In 1965 he signed for Napoli but by 1969 moved back to his native Argentina to coach several club teams. In 1974 he took on his last job in football when he managed the national team of Argentina at the World Cup. The little striker, who looked like a stray street urchin from a Dickens novel and who was known for his tendency to play with his socks rolled down to his ankles, played 19 times for Argentina, scoring for them nine goals. His modest number of Argentine “caps” in view of his enormous natural talent, was due to the fact that at that time players appearing for foreign clubs were barred from the Argentine team. Still, Sivori made a major contribution to the Argentine victory at the 1957 Copa América as he scored three goals in five matches. After he moved to Italy, in April 1961, and being an “oriundo”, a person with Italian roots, he was eagerly snapped up by the selectors. He made his debut for Italy in 1963 and went on to score eight goals - including two against Argentina - in nine international matches for the “Azzurri”. He was also a member of the Italian squad at the 1962 World Cup in Chile. In the last few years of his life, Sivori coached Rosario Central, Estudiantes de la Plata, and River Plate, then for a spell Napoli and finally Velez Sarsfield back in his native in Buenos Aires. On 17 February 2005, at the age of 69, the millionaire Argentine striker died in his birthplace San Nicolas due to pancreatic cancer.

I don't think he deserves WFF/WFA: 6, i can't say anything about his WFA but WFF should be 3 or 4 from what i've seen.

Timeless genius.
Seeing the videos and the way they play. I would rise a bit much as the mentality of Aggression.

S03 - 1-on-1 Finish
S04 - PK Taker
S06 - Outside curve
P05 - Trickster
P07 - Mazing Run
P17 - Free Roaming

This is one of the seven wonders of the world. Fluffy, with the boots socks lowered, disengaged. Calculated 12.5 "tunnels" per game! Tricky, trick-master, roller, goleador. Idol of the masses. Full of magic, abruptness, often quarrelsome. People were intoxicated by his wonderful football.
Maradona before Maradona.
El orgullo y desafío.

Updated to fit new format.

Accepted julgui's card suggestions + added 3 more cards (2 of them are S dribbling cards). I don't think he needs higher Aggression (especially since he now has P17: Free Roaming) or Mentality (he wasn't a hard worker on the field, he was more of an artist, magician with the ball).

Lowered Defence from 42 to 38. Raised Balance from 73>75 (you can see that in some situations he continues to dribble, despite being kicked several times).

Height and Weight data is hard to confirm. In every site with that data, there are different information. I don't think he had 70-71 kg (if we consider that 163 cm is his real height).

Lowered Form/Condition/Fitness: 7<6, due to the fact that he played around 32 games per season (players with 40-50 games per season are given Form/Condition/Fitness: 7).

Full list of changes in this update can be found here:

There are quite a few conflicting sources about his height like Plava said seen in the first two additional links. I think we need to analyse some lineup photos

Look at these pictures, even taking into account the different levels on which the players are standing (Sivori, Boniperti and Charles) does not seem much difference between Sivori (according to this page 1.63 m) and Boniperti (also according to page 1.75 m).

He needs a update.
SPS and LPS in green or white and less shot stats.
And I suggest technique at 97. Amazing touches:

Was his first touch really Zidane/Bergkamp level?

He could pluck the ball from the air pretty effortlessly in a Baggio/Cassano esque fashion but hmm.. your probably right i'll lower it.
Looking through some videos he could probably have higher balance, plenty of times where he was surround but 1-2 defenders and he could hold onto the ball and protect his body really well:

such as 1:47



maybe needs higher shot acc as well, excellent placement
