Debate Topic, Part Nine

Topic
Salvatore Schillaci came out of nowhere and was the star of the 1990 World Cup. He had been playing in Serie B the year before and no one could have foreseen his success that first season (1989/90) at Juventus.
However, from the following season onwards (1990/91), Schillaci just failed to function and only scored a handful of goals per season until his transfer to the J-League in 1994.
Does anyone know of any reasons and/or theories he was a one season wonder?

  3. An example of an "ordinary" player having an extraordinary purple patch of form. Schillaci's purple patch just happened to coincide with the 1990 Word Cup Finals tournament.

  4. But that still does not explain his complete loss of form from then on

  5. When he was bought by Inter (1992-93) he was regaining some of his form, but suffered some serious injuries. Before that, the impact of being the most famous player in the world, even for a short time, was probably simply too much for him to sustain.

    1. i was think about that, Schillaci came to the Serie A at a relatively old age of 25, so he was not used to the pressures of Serie A from a young age, such as a vialli, baggio or mancini
