Buriani was a central or defensive or midfielder. He's mostly remembered for his time at Milan from 1977 to 1982: he played 180 matches, scored 14 goals, won the 1978-79 Serie A and gained 2 caps for Italy in 1980. One of his most memorable moments came on 6th November 1977 in a derby against Inter: the match ended 3-1 for the Rossoneri and Buriani scored two goals, becoming immiedately a fan favourite. His Serie A career ended when he was only 31: while playing for Napoli, he got injured with a bad faul by Inter's Andrea Mandorlini and because he didn't recover in six months, his contract was terminated. He then played for Spal in Serie C and retired in 1988. He played also for Monza, Cesena and Roma.
Buriani was a constant midfielder, dynamic and competitive, who constantly ran thanks to his great stamina. He used to wear n° like 7, 11 and occasionally even 10 despite his position, probably because he often joined the attack. He was, in fact, the perfect player who could give force and continuity to Milan's plays. He was considered at the time one of the few Italian players who could actually move without the ball and one of the best at it. He wasn't very stylish but had great technique and was definitely valid: he was a fine passer of the ball and good at intercepting the ball, had great spirit, a natural sense of position as well as teamwork. He was right footed but could use the left foot as well and was gifted with a powerful and accurate shot. Also, he was an able penalty taker: 8 of his 14 goals for Milan where, in fact, penalties. Inter 1-3 Milan: the match where Buriani scored two goals Milan 5-1 Fiorentina: very good performance of Buriani Dribbled by Zaccarelli, then recovers a ball with a tackle Good run on the side followed by a dribbling and a short pass Perfect cross from the right for Bigon Good interception, short run and pass Nice first time shot, saved by Zoff Good interception, which is also a short pass Good first time cross that leads to a goal Shows great dynamism, dribbles an opponent and shoots
