Giovanni debuted successfully as a player, a central defender with AC Milan at age 18 in a cup game. He played successfully for 12 years (in the Milan team from 1960 to 1971, Varese from 1971 to 1972). Meanwhile, he was also a defensive midfielder in the national team (1960 – 1964). Successful playing not only helped Giovanni Trapattoni to increase the outright size of his net worth, but also gave him the ability to see the game from another point, prior to coaching and management. In all he played 284 club games, and 17 internationals, including in the 1962 World Cup. His playing career certainly set the basis for his net worth.

As a coach, Trapattoni has had an outstanding career. Known by the diminutive of Trap, he is defined as the most representative coach of Italian football after World War II., and is considered to be the one of the foremost artists of football. Giovanni is the most victorious Italian coach at club level and one of the most titled in the world, having won the league championships in Italy, Germany, Portugal and Austria, in total ten national titles. Trapattoni is ranked as the sixth coach in the world – the fourth in Europe – with the most trophies won in this category. These achievements contributed considerably in adding to his net worth.

Inspired by Nereo Rocco, Giovanni Trapatonni is distinguished both for his strategic knowledge and the reading of the game as well as the power to motivate his players. The coach got most of his honours with Juventus, the team that he guided continuously from 1976 to1986. During this period he won six Italian Serie A championships and two Italian Cups, while becoming the first coach in history to have won all three major club competitions organized by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) with the same team and, later on, all the events run by the confederation.

Trapattoni then moved somewhat controversially to coach Internazionale of Milan, winning the Serie A title in 1988-89, and the UEFA Cup in 1990-91. These achievements also added to his net worth. He then coached Bayern Munchen, Cagliari and Fiorentina, with limited success, but adding to his net worth.

Following years in club football, Giovanni Trapattoni moved to coach the Italian national football team from 2000 to 2004, but was unsuccessful at the 2002 World Cup and 2004 European Championship. In season 2004-05 Trapattoni coached Portuguese club Benfica to the national title, followed by a short period at Stuttgart, before coaching Salzburg to the Austrian title in 2006-07.

From 2008-13, Giovanni Trapattoni coached the Irish national team, which almost qualified for the World Cup played in South Africa in 2010 after a controversial match against France, succeeding in qualifying for the European Championship held jointly in Poland and Ukraine two years later. In 2007 he was listed as one of the fifty best coaches in football history by The Times. Six years later, he appeared on the special list of the twenty greatest coaches compiled by ESPN, in USA. Finally, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the category of Italian football coach in 2012.

In the very stable personal life of the coach, Giovanni Trapatonni has been married to Paola since 1964, and they are now grand-parents through their two children.
