Alessandro Nesta
The Miami FC is led by first-time head coach Alessandro Nesta. Nesta is one of the world’s most decorated defenders after being a fixture in Serie A and the Italian National Team.
 
After a strong career with the Lazio youth academy, Nesta turned pro at just 16 years old and made his first appearance at 17. He was named the team captain as a 21-year-old, leading the side to a Coppa Italia title and UEFA Cup Final appearance. Nesta would go on to make 193 appearances for Lazio as the club would continually compete for Serie A and Champions League titles.
 
Nesta would leave Lazio in 2002, when he moved to Italian giant’s AC Milan. In his first season with the club, he won the Champions League and the Coppa Italia. For his performance he was named the Serie A Defender of the Year and to the UEFA Team of the Year. His second season would see AC Milan win Serie A while setting a points record. Nesta would play 10 seasons for AC Milan and cement himself as one of the best defenders of all time.
 
At the tail end of his career Nesta moved to the MLS and got his first taste of US soccer. He would play two seasons with the Montreal Impact, leading them to the 2013 Amway Canadian Championship and the club’s first MLS playoff appearance.
 
In 2014 Nesta decided to retire and was chosen to lead the Miami FC in its inaugural NASL season in 2016
