Brescia next manager after Fabio Grosso
Brescia – Fabio Grosso
Fabio Grosso is a name which will be familiar to football fans around the world given his remarkable achievements at the very pinnacle of the international and club game. He has recently been appointed as manager of struggling Serie A side Brescia FC -it is his third senior managerial position.
Born in Rome on the 28th of November 1977, Grosso began his footballing years at Renato Curi, his local club. Although he would go down in history as a world-class left-back, Grosso started out his life in football as a player who played either as an attacking midfielder or a winger. He was handed his first professional contract in 1995 after a year with the club's academy. He made his first senior appearance the same year - it would turn out to be the first of 125. During this time he managed a very impressive return of 55 goals.
After four years with Renato Curi, he moved to Chieti where he would stay for two seasons. His goal return was again impressive, this time he scored 17 goals in 68 appearances between 1999 and 2001. After he moved to Perugia in 2001, he began to move into a more defensive position. His goal return reflected this, Gross scoring seven goals in almost exactly the same number of appearances as he had for Chieti.
He made his first notable move in 2004 when he joined Serie A big-wigs, Palermo. Again, Grosso would stay at the club for two years. This time he would make 90 appearances and score just two goals before moving onto bigger and better things in the form of Inter Milan. He failed to really nail down a starting spot with Inter however and would leave after one season in which he scored two goals in 23 appearances.
He took his one and only step outside Italy when he joined French giants Lyon in 2007. He would play in Ligue 1 for two full seasons, playing 53 times and scoring two goals. He impressed greatly in France and was recognised for his virtuosic exploits from the left-back position throughout the country. It was a move which was made all the more poignant because Grossi had scored the winning penalty against France in the 2006 World Cup final the summer before he arrived in the country.
He returned to Italy to finish his career at the highest level when he joined Juventus in 2009. In his final campaign as a footballer, Grossi won the second Serie A title of his career. He finished with a record for Juventus of 47 appearances and two goals.
He then moved into the managerial side of the game. He stayed with the Old Lady for three years after his retirement, managing the side's youngsters before moving on to his first senior position with Bari in 2017. After a year with Bari in which he performed in line with expectations set out for him, Grosso took a job with fellow Serie A side Hellas Veronas. His time with the club was a disaster however after he was dismissed after just three games. Finally, Grossi was appointed the Brescia manager of Brescia on the 5th of November following the side's poor league form in the months previous.
