Dino Sani (Brazilian Portuguese: ; Italian: ; born 23 May 1932) is a former Brazilian footballer and coach. Dino Sani was a playmaking central midfielder with goalscoring prowess, as well as being a team player, who was well known for his ball skills, technique, accurate passing ability, creativity, and close control. Although he was not gifted with notable pace or athletic attributes, his positioning, outstanding vision, and his adeptness at long balls, in particular, also made him a capable assist provider throughout his career.[1][2]

The son of Italian immigrants (Gaetano Sani and Maria Gabrielli), he started his career at local club Palmeiras, XV de Jaú, Commercial-SP and São Paulo FC,[3] and played in the Argentine First Division for Boca Juniors[4] in 1961, where he played 13 games, scoring 4 goals. He then played in Italy for Serie A club AC Milan,[5] with whom he won one scudetto in the 1961–62 season, followed by the 1962–63 European Cup.[2][6]

As a member of the Brazil national team, Dino Sani participated at the South American Championship tournaments of 1957 in Peru and 1959 in Argentina, reaching the final on both occasions; he was also part of the squad that won the 1958 World Cup in Sweden. He made 15 appearances in total for Brazil between 1957 and 1966, scoring 1 goal.[7]

After he left Milan in 1964, he returned to South America, and played for Corinthians before becoming a coach. He managed Internacional,[8] Goiás, Palmeiras, Coritiba, Peñarol,[9] Flamengo, Fluminense, Boca Juniors, Qatar and Grêmio.
