"There was too much doping" ... Dino Baggio worries about his generation after the death of Gianluca Vialli


The ex-Italy international fears that taking doping products could have caused the illnesses of his former team-mate and Sinisa Mihajlo

Nearly two weeks after the death of Gianluca Vialli, Dino Baggio pointed to doping as a potential explanation for the death of his former teammate, suffering from pancreatic cancer.

With his 60 caps with Squadra Azzurra in the 90s, Baggio explained the methods employed by Italian clubs at the time.

“We have to go back to what we took, we have to investigate a little about the substances taken during these periods, he claimed at the microphone of the Italian channel Tv7.

I don't know if it's due to that, but there has always been doping.

Vialli's partner at Juventus, Baggio also played with Sinisa Mihajlovic at Lazio Rome.

The former Bologna manager died in December 2022 from leukemia.

“We never took weird stuff because there was a percentage that you have to respect.

But over time, you have to see if certain substances are good or not, if they can be eliminated or remain inside the body, ”added the former Parma midfielder.

The 51-year-old retiree is now worried about his own health and that of his teammates and opponents who played in the Italian league.

“Many have already spoken about the grass on the pitches and the products they used which could cause problems... I'm also afraid for me, it happens to too many players.

In my years, there was too much doping.
