Roberto Boninsegna was very strong and brave player who could score but also run on the wings, had great shot and heading abilities, good set piece taker, with solid speed and technique. Together with Luigi Riva, he made Cagliari to a top Italian club left him but to the 1969/70 season in the direction of Inter Milan. Henceforth, Riva and Boninsegna formed only in the Italian national team a feared strike partnership. Ironically, 1970 was without Boninsegna Cagliari for the first and only time Italian champion. Boninsegna but played in the same year at the Football World Cup 1970 in Mexico, a great world tournament. He shot up to the 92nd Inventory-to-do 1-0 minutes for Italy in the legendary century game between Italy and Germany and moved by the success of 4:3 in the final against Brazil one. Again, he scored the 1:4 defeat at the intermediate 1-1 draw. For German soccer fans Roberto Boninsegna remains in negative memories through the bush throwing game in October 1971. In the second round of the European Cup of Champions between Borussia Moenchengladbach and Inter Milan threw a spectator when the score was 2-1 for Gladbach, a drinks can on the player Boninsegna, who collapsed and then in the 28th Take minutes of space left. Of spectators and commentators at the time this was seen as acting. Mönchengladbach won the game with a sensational 7-1, the UEFA later annulled the result. In a rematch in Berlin came not go beyond the Moenchengladbach 0-0. In the 89th Minutes Boninsegna Ludwig Mueller fouled hard and broke his tibia and fibula. Since they first leg in Milan had lost with 2:4, then they dropped out. Boninsegna contrast, drew with Inter later in the finals and lost to Ajax Amsterdam. Boninsegna 1974 returned to Germany for the soccer World Cup in 1974. In 1976 Boninsegna switched for three years from Inter Milan to major competitors Juventus , where he in 1977 at the side of Roberto Bettega and Franco Causio the UEFA Cup win. He finished his playing career in 1980 at Hellas Verona .

Era un attaccante di sfondamento, a tratti egoista in campo. Molto dotato in acrobazia e nel gioco aereo, rimangono nella memoria i suoi duelli col difensore Francesco Morini, dapprima rivale e poi compagno di squadra. Secondo un parere di Gianni Brera, Boninsegna è stato, nei primi anni 1970, il più forte centravanti del mondo insieme al connazionale Gigi Riva. Ottimo rigorista, in Serie A riuscì a mettere a segno 19 penalty consecutivi, la striscia più lunga mai realizzata nel massimo campionato italiano.

È noto col soprannome di Bonimba, termine coniato dallo stesso Brera (e non particolarmente amato da Boninsegna) durante i trascorsi dell'attaccante a Cagliari; il particolare nomignolo nacque dalla crasi tra Boninsegna e Bagonghi — quest'ultimo, un desueto pseudonimo riferito ai nani da circo — e, secondo Brera, esprimeva al meglio il fatto che, pur non vantando una grande statura fisica, Boninsegna riusciva agilmente a saltare più in alto dei suoi marcatori.
