Guglielmo Stendardo (born 6 May 1981) is an Italian footballer who plays for Atalanta as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Stendardo began his career at Napoli in 1997 and has played for a number of top Italian football clubs, including Sampdoria, Lazio, and Juventus. After a 3–2 defeat to Juventus in late 2007, Stendardo had a falling-out with Lazio manager Delio Rossi and demanded a transfer during the January 2008 transfer window.

In January 2008, Juventus officially announced the signing of Stendardo to a 6-month loan deal, for €400,000, with an option to buy him outright in the summer.[1] On 1 September he was loaned to Lecce in a one-year deal,[2] and spent the 2008–09 season with the Giallorossi with little success, as the side went relegated to Serie B.

Stendardo then returned to Lazio, and played 33 Serie A games in 2 seasons. After making no appearances in 2011–12, he left for Atalanta in January 2012, on loan until June. In August he was bought outright by La Dea.

Personal life[edit]

Stendardo's brother, Mariano, is also a footballer. He is a law graduate who operates an agriturismo in the town of Agropoli, near Salerno.[citation needed]
