Filippo Carobbio (born 15 October 1979) is an Italian footballer.

Football career[edit]

Carobbio started his career at Atalanta youth team. He was farmed to Serie B and Serie C1 teams, then jointed Varese in co-ownership bid. Carobbio returned to Atalanta in June 2002 but joined AlbinoLeffe immediately.

He followed the team promoted to Serie B in summer 2003. He played his first regular Serie B season, before signed by Serie A team Reggina on 25 August 2005 in joint-ownership bid, for €600,000.[1]

He made his Serie A debut against U.C. Sampdoria, on 11 September 2005.

On 25 January 2007, Genoa C.F.C. signed Carobbio from Reggina for €300,000[1] in 2½ year contract, he played 8 games for the Serie B third-place winner, before returned to AlbinoLeffe on 22 June 2007 from Genoa for €200,000 in 2-year contract.[1] In August 2007 Genoa also acquired 50% registration rights of Gleison Santos from AlbinoLeffe, for €900,000, made Genoa instead had a net debt of €700,000 to AlbinoLeffe.

Bari[edit]

In June 2009, he left for Serie B champion A.S. Bari for their Serie A campaign on free transfer.[2] But he did not played for Bari in the first three games before left on loan to Grosseto on 31 August.

Siena[edit]

In July 2010 Carobbio left for Siena along with Pedro Kamata for €500,000 each, in 3-year contract. Both players were part of Abdelkader Ghezzal's deal to Bari (Ghezzal was priced €2.25 million, thus only €1.25 million cash involved). He wore no.14 shirt.[3][4] The team finished as the runner-up of 2010–11 Serie B and promoted.

In June 2011 the co-ownership deal was terminated. Bari and Siena formed a pure exchange deal, which Nicola Belmonte, Carobbio and Kamata joined Siena outright and Ghezzal moved to Bari outright. In July 2011 he was signed by Spezia Calcio.[5]

Italian football scandal[edit]

On 31 May 2012 (effectively on 18 June 2012) he was suspended for 1 year and 8-month due to involvement in 2011–12 Italian football scandal, which Siena also terminated his contract one year earlier (originally ended on 30 June 2013) backdated to 2011–12 financial year.[6] The ban already after a plea bargain with federal prosecutor.[7] Carobbio had been questioned by the authority on 29 February 2012[8] and again on 10 July 2012.[9]

On 1 August 2012 Carobbio was banned for 4 more months (already after plea[10]) due to the further investigation from Cremona authority. During the investigations, Carobbio accused Antonio Conte, by-then Siena coach, of failure to report match-fixing, an accusation that would lead to Conte being tried and banned from footballing activities for an eventual sentence of four months. Carobbio's ban was extended again on 3 August 2012 due to the investigation from Bari authority to 26 months (2 more months).[11]
