Facundo Sebastián Roncaglia (locally: [roŋˈkaɣlja]; born 10 February 1987) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for Italian club Genoa C.F.C. on loan from ACF Fiorentina. Mainly a central defender, he can also play as a right back.

Football career[edit]

Born in Chajarí, Entre Ríos of Italian descent,[1] Roncaglia made his professional debuts with Boca Juniors, his first top flight match being on 21 October 2007 in a 1–1 draw against Estudiantes de La Plata. He helped the capital team win the 2008 Apertura.

On 27 July 2009, Roncaglia signed with La Liga side RCD Espanyol on loan,[2] being part of a squad that also featured five countrymen – including manager Mauricio Pochettino and former Boca teammate Juan Forlín. He returned to his previous team at the end of the season, only to move to Estudiantes immediately, in the same predicament.[3]

Roncaglia left Boca in July 2012 as a free agent,[4] having scored in the first leg of the 2012 Copa Libertadores final against Sport Club Corinthians Paulista late in the previous month (1–1 home draw, 1–3 aggregate loss).[5] He joined ACF Fiorentina in Italy immediately after.
