Ferdinando Coppola (born 10 June 1978) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Serie B club Bologna.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Coppola's career began at native club S.S.C. Napoli, he was used as a backup goalkeeper for Giuseppe Taglialatela, Luca Mondini and Alessio Bandieri. In June 2000, he joined Bologna F.C. 1909, exchanged with Marco Roccati. He was the backup of Gianluca Pagliuca.

Ascoli[edit]

He transferred to Serie B team Ascoli Calcio 1898 in the summer of 2003, making one appearance before being sent to Serie A team Reggina Calcio on loan, playing further two games.

He returned to Ascoli in 2004, and made 28 appearances, plus 2 more in play-offs, helping Ascoli achieve promotion back to Serie A. During the 2005–06 season, Coppola played all of the 38 Serie A fixtures, and saw Ascoli finish twelfth place in the table.

Milan and Piacenza[edit]

Coppola was signed by A.C. Milan in June 2006, for €200,000,[1] as a replacement for their third choice goalkeeper Valerio Fiori, who was set to retire from professional football. Coppola was to compete with Željko Kalac for this position.

He played a few friendly matches with A.C. Milan, but was sent back to Serie B, to play for Piacenza Calcio, because Fiori delayed his retirement.

Atalanta[edit]

In the summer of 2007, he was loaned to Atalanta in Serie A.

In June 2008, Atalanta bought half of the rights from Milan for €750,000.[2]

Siena[edit]

After Atalanta were relegated, Milan bought him back for €200,000[3] and loaned him to Siena.[4] Two days later Siena sold Gianluca Curci to Sampdoria.

Torino[edit]

On 30 June 2011, Torino announced the signing of Coppola on a temporary basis from Milan.[5] Before the start of the 2012–13, Coppola was sentenced to a six-month ban, later reduced to four months on appeal, for his involvement in the 2011–12 Italian football scandal.[6] After serving the ban, during the January transfer window he re-joined Torino, this time on a permanent deal.[7]

Back in Milan[edit]

On 19 August 2013, he was re-signed by Milan.[8]

Bologna[edit]

On 8 July 2014 Coppola moved to Bologna.[9]
