Bruno Bolchi Career, What was his profession?

On May 18, 1958, F.C. Internazionale Milano’s Bruno Bolchi made his Serie A debut at the age of 18 in a road loss to S.S.C. Napoli. He spent six seasons with the Nerazzurri, earning 109 caps, ten goals, and the moniker “Maciste” for his intimidating build, power, and aggressive style of play.  Between 1961 and 1962, he served as team captain. During his time with the club, he enjoyed considerable success, taking home the Serie A championship in 1963 and the European Cup in 1964.

He next played for Serie B team Verona before returning to the top flight to play for Atalanta and Torino, where his playing days came to an end in 1970. With the latter club, he had also won the Coppa Italia in 1968. Bolchi had four appearances for the Italy national team, all in 1961. In 1971, Bolchi began his coaching career with Pro Patria, a Seconda Categoria team at the time (at the time, Seconda Categoria was the sixth level of Italian football).

He began working as a professional coach at Sorrento in 1974. He also served as Pistoiese’s coach, who won the Serie C championship in 1976–1977 and was promoted to Serie B. In 1982, he took over as the head coach of Cesena, a Serie A side, but was unable to prevent its relegation.

Coach in Serie A

Despite a lengthy coaching career throughout Italy, Bolchi has only managed to coach in Serie A twice since that time. In 1985–86, his third season as Bari’s manager, after two consecutive promotions from Serie C1 (winning the 1983–84 Serie C1 title), Bolchi was unable to save the biancorossi from relegation.

His previous Serie A position before 2007 was as head coach of Pisa, but he was fired following the 22nd matchday. Bolchi was appointed head coach of Messina on April 23, 2007, with just five games left before the league’s conclusion. He had previously led the team in Serie C in 1975–1976 and Serie B for six games at the conclusion of the 2002–2003 season. Due to his failure to prevent relegation and Messina’s dismal league standing prior to his employment, he eventually decided to give up football after the season.
