Sforza also played for the Italian giants Inter Milan where he showed off his strategic talent in central midfield.


After successfully attaining his coaching diploma in Germany, the Italian born football professional, who grew up in Aargau, gained his first experiences as a head coach in Switzerland.

At the age of 16 he made his debut in top flight football with GC(Grasshopper Club Zurich).

With his own international experience at the highest level and his ability to coach  young talent, he fits perfectly into our club´s concept.  Ciriaco will  support us in developing our club accordingly. "Ciriaco Sforza:" FC Basel has made history beyond its borders. My goal is to add more successful chapters to this club, both nationally and internationally. I am looking forward to this great challenge and thank FCB for their trust."
