Baggio Salary & Net WorthHow much did Roberto Baggio earn?
Roberto Baggio has a net worth of...
40 Million Euros (47.3 Million Dollars)
This man has inspired numerous footballers and kick started an era of dominance of Italian football. He had a silky touch and made diminutive runs at speed to beat defenders. He was a cross between a midfielder and a forward. The Divine Ponytail was known to change the tempo of his team's attack. His lack of defensive ability was dis-likened by many in Italy, but he made their game more enjoyable. As a player, he enjoyed very little success. He was compensated quite well for his contribution on the pitch, though. We estimate his net worth to be about 40 Million Euros.
Current JobWhat does Baggio currently do?
His post-retirement life has been largely uneventful. He has thought about getting into coaching after football, but it never materialized. (Image: imgur.com)
Oh my hair!
If you wanted proof of what a solid Mediterranean diet could do to your hair, and overall health in general, look at his hair. Those locks were the envy of many a teammate back in the day. (Image: imgur.com)
He's all about business in the front and party in the back. For all you kids who didn't know, this was a peak 90s hairstyle. The Pope doesn't seem to judge him for his boisterous decision. It looks like he might even have the Holy Man's approval. We're not sure if he felt the same away about him deserting Catholicism. (Image: imgur.com)
A kick to forget
His biggest failure on the football pitch had to come in the final of a World Cup, didn't it? He was never the same player, at least mentally, after he missed this spot kick. He could have kept Italy in the game had he scored this one. (Image: imgur.com)
Wasn't Meant To Be
Would they have made something out of it had he scored? We'll never know. But everyone's quick to blame him for the loss in 1994. It came as a surprise to many because he's usually a reliable penalty taker. This was one occasion in which he let his nerves get to him. It happens to the very best, and there's no shame in succumbing. We're human, after all. (Image: imgur.com)
He had a great end to 1993. It was the year he won the Ballon d'Or. He had a great season with Juve, and it was well due. Little did he know that his life would never be the same in a little over a year. (Image: imgur.com)
The Best Days
Although he was not a traditional forward or a number 9, his goal-scoring output was never bad. He'd constantly hit 20 goals or more every time he played for the Old Lady. He began showing glimpses of his talent at Fiorentina before his time in Turin. Everything changed after 1994. He was never the same player. In fact, he reached the 20 goal mark just once after that in his entire domestic career. A travesty indeed. (Image: imgur.com)
The Divine Ponytail
Did you not know that he probably didn't celebrate birthdays? The man was essentially a monk playing football. Well, maybe not, but he was the next best thing you could get. As a convert to Buddhism, he has been a staunch follower of the faith. It was the reason why his ponytail was called Divine. It's highly likely that he still follows it to this day. It could also be the reason why he's quietly bowed out from all public life. (Image: imgur.com)
Love Life - Single, Girlfriend or Wife?
Roberto Baggio Wife - Andreina Fabbi
He was following Buddhism when he married Andreina. It's a surprise that he went with a Catholic ceremony. (Image: imgur.com)
Roberto Baggio Wife - Andreina Fabbi
Andreina has aged like fine wine. Oh, and so has he. They look chic in black. We're not sure what the design in his shirt is supposed to mean, though. (Image: imgur.com)
Family - Get to know them
Baggio Daughter - Valentina
Valentina is his firstborn. Did you notice the flag tattoo on the arm? Why is she sporting the Spanish colors? (Image: imgur.com)
Baggio Son - Mattia
Mattia was born in 1994. He probably never showed interest in football. That could tell us something. (Image: imgur.com)
Baggio Son - Leonardo
Leo's just fifteen. We don't think he'd play the sport even for fun. (Image: imgur.com)
Baggio Car - What does he drive?
The F40 was the pinnacle of sports cars from the early 90s. It was mid-engine rear-wheel drive, and only a little over 1000 of these were ever produced. (Image: imgur.com)
House - Where does he live?
Location: Vicenza, Italy
The place looks as simple as a monk's sanctum. He doesn't mind the cake this time around. (Image: imgur.com)
