Héctor "Ettore" Puricelli (15 September 1916 – 14 May 2001) was an football player and manager. Born in Uruguay, he represented Italy at international level. As a player, he is most famous for his time with Bologna and Milan.[1]


After playing for his hometown side Central Español from Montevideo, Puricelli decided to move from Uruguay to Italy in 1938 to play for Serie A side Bologna. The club were going through a good spell in their history and with goals from Puricelli they were able to continue that; in his first season they won the Italian championship of 1938–39.

In his first season Puricelli was joint-capcannonieri (top scorer) in Serie A, along with Aldo Boffi of Milan with 19 goals. He recaptured this feat in 1940–41 with 22 goals, he also won his second championship title with Bologna that season.

After World War II, Puricelli joined Milan and although his goalscoring record continued in healthy fashion, the club did not capture the league championship; the nearest they came during this period was runners-up in 1947–48. He ended his playing career with Legnano in Serie B still prolific in his goalscoring.
