Club career

Dossena began his playing career for Torino, and was called up for Italy at the 1982 FIFA World Cup.[2] He then played for Bologna, Udinese, Sampdoria and Perugia.[3] Dossena is mostly remembered for his time with Sampdoria, where he achieved notable domestic and international success, winning the 1988-89 Coppa Italia, the 1989-90 European Cup Winners' Cup, the 1990-91 Serie A title, and the 1991 Supercoppa Italiana, also losing out on the 1990 European Super Cup final to European Cup winners and Serie A rivals Milan.[4]

International career

With the Italian national side, Dossena received 38 caps between 1981 and 1987, scoring 1 goal. After making 4 appearances in Italy's 1982 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, he was selected as a member of Italy's 1982 FIFA World Cup winning squad, although he was an unused substitute throughout the tournament.[5][6][1]

Style of play

Primarily a playmaker, Dossena was a hard-working, creative team player, renowned for his stamina, vision, technique, and passing ability, although he was also known for his ability to make attacking runs and strike from distance.[4]

Managerial career

Later, he started a managing career at international level, coaching Ghana for two years (1998–2000),[7] and then being assistant of Cesare Maldini in Paraguay's appearance at the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Between 2000 and 2001, he coached Ittihad Jeddah of Saudi Arabia.[8] He later worked as an analyst for Italian public broadcasting company RAI.
