Late this afternoon, in the press room of Mapei Football Center, during an event with fans to which Francesco Magnanelli was also invited, CEO Giovanni Carnevali revealed the club’s intention to retire the legendary black&green No. 4 jersey worn by Francesco Magnanelli for 520 matches during his 17-year activitiy with Sassuolo.
Thus, a small surprise ceremony was held in front of the fans in which the jersey was permanently handed over to its rightful owner.
At Sassuolo, the black&green No. 4 is and always will be only that of Francesco Magnanelli
Once again THANK YOU CAPTAIN!!!
