He started his football career in the youth teams of Roma winning a Primavera Championship in 1983-84 and the prestigious Viareggio Cup in 1983. The club then decided to send him on loan to gain experience. He played three years at Arezzo in Serie B, from 1984 to 1986, and one at Avellino in Serie A before returning to the Giallorossi in 1988.

He played four years on the wrong side of the Tiber winning a Coppa Italia in 1990-91. After 139 appearances and 9 goals he was sold to Fiorentina in 1992. After a year the Viola sent him on loan to Lazio. A weird decision since the player was an obvious Roma supporter as well as a former player. Coincidence had it that he scored Lazio’s equaliser in the first derby of 1993-94 and he ran under Curva Nord to receive the embrace of all Biancoceleste supporters. He has been hated by the Roma fans ever since.

He stayed at Lazio just one season with 25 appearances (24 in Serie A and 4 in Coppa Italia) with two goals. He then went back to Fiorentina for another year before ending his career with Reggiana in 1995-96.

At international level he has three caps with the Nazionale, two of which were qualifying games for the 1994 World Cup.

Once he stopped active football but he stayed in the “calcio” world, first as Sports Director for Lodigiani and then worked for the Roma youth sector. In 2008 he started working for the now defunct Lupa Roma as sports director and in charge of the youth sector.

His goal in the derby and run under the Curva Nord stand out as memories for Lazio fans and are certainly fond ones.
