Villiam Vecchi

Villiam Vecchi

Villiam Vecchi (born December 28 1948, in Scandiano, Reggio Emilia) is a former Italian soccer goalkeeper, and currently the goalkeeping coach for A.C. Milan.

He played with Milan from 1967 to 1974, and joined Como Calcio 1907 in 1976. In his five years with the club, Como endured a rollercoaster ride through Serie B and Serie C1 before making the top flight in 1980, where they remained as he departed after the 1980-81 campaign; Como were relegated back to Serie B the following season.

He has the distinction of having trained both Dida and Gianluigi Buffon, the latter during a stint with Parma F.C. under the helm of current Milan head coach Carlo Ancelotti.

His first name is often misinterpreted as "William."
