Maurizio Gaudino (born 12 December 1966 in Brühl,[1] West Germany) is a retired German football midfielder.[2]

He was capped five times for Germany in 1993 and 1994, and was in their squad for the 1994 World Cup.

Gaudino played 294 Bundesliga games for Waldhof Mannheim, VfB Stuttgart, Eintracht Frankfurt and VfL Bochum. He won the league title with Stuttgart in 1992. He also helped them to the 1989 UEFA Cup Final and got himself on the scoresheet in the first leg, although they ultimately lost to a Diego Maradona inspired Napoli.

In 1995 he was loaned out to Manchester City and helped the team end the season with some magnificent performances including a 3–2 victory over the league champions that year Blackburn Rovers. He scored three times in 20 league games, but City still finished 16th in the Premier League (just three places clear of relegation) after a promising early season run of form had hinted at a UEFA Cup place or even a push for the league title.

He transferred to Antalyaspor in 1999 and played for them until Antalyaspor's relegation to Second League A Category in 2001–02 season.

In 1994 he hit the headlines when he was arrested after a television appearance for alleged insurance fraud. Later he was convicted to a two years sentence set out to parole.

In 2006 he played in a charity match in England, where he was fouled and injured by English politician Boris Johnson, after a clumsy attempt to play the ball with his head, which appeared to the crowd be a rugby tackle.
