Alessandro Nesta is a legendary retired Italian football player who now coaches for Miami FC of the North American Soccer League.
Nesta is widely considered one of the best center backs of all-time. His athleticism and elegance paired with his strength, vision and smarts allowed Nesta to dominate games from the back. His on the ball skills also allowed him to bring the ball up and eschew pressure.
On September 1, 2015 Nesta was named the first head coach of the newly formed Miami FC. He joins fellow Italians and co-owners Riccardo Silva and defensive legend, Paolo Maldini in Miami.
