Where is Fabrizio Ravanelli now?
After a brief but entertaining career in England’s Premier League, Fabrizio Ravanelli also known as “The White Feather”, retired from playing in 2005 at Perugia, the team where he also started his career.
Ravanelli’s career at Middlesborough was eventful to say the least and he will be forever adored by the Teeside for his goal-scoring exploits and influence on the team during the 1996-1997 season.
Arriving at the club as the highest paid footballer in the Premier League, Ravanelli scored 16 Premier League goals in 33 appearances and helped the team reach both the League Cup and the FA Cup finals.
Unfortunately his goals weren’t enough to save Middlesbrough from relegation that year and he left the club soon after.
In 2011 Ravanelli joined Juventus as a coach within their youth academy but left the Italian giants in 2013.
After a short spell out of the game he then joined French club AC Ajaccio in 2014 but was sacked after losing seven of his first 12 games in charge.

Ravanelli was back in football management in June 2018 when he was appointed as manager of Ukranian Premier League side Arsenal Kiev.
His tenure only lasted nine games and he resigned three months later after claiming that the club was ‘not remotely professional’ and that the players hadn’t been paid.
Away from coaching, Ravanelli has worked as a TV pundit in Italy for channels such as Sky Italia and ESPN.
He has also spoken of his love for Middlesbrough and desire to return to the club one day as manager.
In July 2017 Ravanelli represented Italy in Star Sixes, a six-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.
