Cuccureddu was a side back, who could cover almost every position in the field. In the 1975-76 season he played at least once as right and left back, centre back, defensive and central midfielder, attacking midfielder, right and left side midfielder. He spent the majority of his career at Juventus, playing 438 matches and scoring 39 goals ─ he became at the time one of the most prolific defenders-midfielders in Serie A history ─ from 1969 to 1981. He played also for Torres, Brescia, Fiorentina and Novara. He gained 13 caps for Italy. He took part to the 1978 FIFA World Cup, becoming the first ever Sardinian player to take the field in a World Cup final phase.
Cuccureddu was an incredibly versatile player, gifted with dynamism, speed, tactical intelligence and a high attacking attitude. In his early Serie A years, he was compared to Torino's legend Eusebio Castigliano, who was one of the defensive players to push forward and look for a scoring chance. Cuccureddu had an accurate and very powerful right-footed shot that he used mainly from outside area but he was comfortable with the left foot as well and used also the outside with efficiency. He was also capable from free kick and penalty. In any case, his shots always went straight to the goal, never changing direction. He had strength, stamina and great determination to give continuous support to the team, especially to the attackers. He ran for 90 minutes and fatigueness didn't exist for him. He possessed fine technique and dribbling, alternating determined challenges with elegant actions. He had a fine passing ability, especially when crossing he could deliver fast high, mid-high or low to the ground balls. He was also decent in the air and several times he waited for the ball inside the box, made a good leap and hit the ball with a header.
