Yesterday, at Fregene, passed away Mario Facco, member of Scudetto-winning side 1974. Facco had 72 years and fought against ilness during last couple of years.

Facco was acquisition of Lazio during summer of 1968, when he arrived from Inter, together with Ferrucio Mazzola, with Lazio preparing season in Serie B, in aftermath winning promotion back in Serie A. Facco was defender, mostly positioned as full back or stopper on occasions. Should have been starter also in season of Scudetto, but nasty injury during season 1972-73 compromised his career and Sergio Petrelli took his place in starting XI during 1973-74, leaving to Facco only 6 apperances (all in starting XI). In october 1974 he left Lazio and signed for Avellino.

Facco played 126 matches for Lazio between Serie A and Serie B, scoring 6 goals.

Today would’ve been the 96th birthday of our legendary coach Tommaso Maestrelli who led the club to our first Scudetto in 1974. In the crulest of reversals of fortune he was then diagnosed with terminal cancer and tragically succumbed only 18 months later. A legend, what else can be said.
