PositionMidfielder

He started his career at AC Milan being a product of their youth system, making his first team debut aged eighteen on the opening day of the 1995-1996 season. His appearances were limited however as he was in competition for the left back spot with Paolo Maldini and he moved to Vicenza on loan for the whole of the 1997-1998 season. After returning to AC Milan he again was frustrated by a lack of first team opportunities and he went on loan again this time to Torino for the 1999-2000 season. He was a member of the Italian under 21 side that won the 2000 European Championships and his performances at Torino earned him an international debut in October 2000 against Romania. He returned to AC Milan but surprisingly left for Barcelona in August 2001 where he has failed to become a regular.
