Guido Marilungo (born August 9, 1989) is an Italian footballer who plays as a striker for Cesena on loan from Atalanta. He is known for his lightning pace and powerful right foot and eye for goal.

Club career[edit]

Born in Montegranaro, Province of Fermo, Marche, he moved his first footsteps with his hometown club until the age of 14, when he was noted by FIFA agent Silvio Pagliari who proposed him to Sampdoria, which successively chose to sign the player and include him in their Giovanissimi Nazionali (under-15) squad for the 2003–04 season.[1][2] He was pivotal in the 2007–08 Sampdoria under-19 double (Campionato Primavera and Coppa Italia Primavera).

On January 11, 2009, he made his first team debut in a Serie A home league game as a second-half substitute against Palermo, a 2–0 loss for the Genoese club.[3] Three months later, exactly on April 26, 2009, he made his first start in a 3–3 draw with Cagliari, with Marilungo scoring two goals, the first ones in his senior career.[4]

On August 27, 2009, Marilungo joined Serie B outfit Lecce on a one-year loan spell.[5] On 12 September 2010, he signed a 5-year contract to stay with Sampdoria,[6] but only four months later, he joined Atalanta in a 4½-year deal for €4.7 million.[7][8] Sampdoria relegated at the end of 2010–11 season, with Atlanta promoted to Serie A at the same time.

On 17 January 2014 Marilungo was signed by Serie B club A.C. Cesena.[9]

International career[edit]

On 8 September 2009 he made his debut with the Italy U-21 team in a game against Luxembourg. He scored 2 goals in 7 appearances with the U-21 team.
