Marco Delvecchio (Italian pronunciation: [ˈmarko delˈvɛkkjo]; sometimes erroneously spelled Del Vecchio; born 7 April 1973 in Milan, Italy) is an Italian retired footballer. He spent the most of his career at AS Roma where he is still remembered for his ease in scoring against the rivals of SS Lazio in the Derby della Capitale. Currently he collaborates with a Roman private radio as football-opinionist.
He was a versatile and hard-working forward, who was capable of playing anywhere along the front line, as well as in midfield, as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, although he was primarily utilised as a central striker or as a supporting forward. His main attributes were his aerial ability, his finishing, and his positioning skills. He was also a good passer and dribbler, which enabled him to create chances and provide team-mates with assists.
Prior to joining Roma in 1995, Delvecchio played for Internazionale (1992 and 1994–95), then played for Venezia (1992–93), and Udinese (1993–94). His career reached a high when he was a star at Roma and when he won the Scudetto with Roma in 2001. He played one season for Brescia in 2004–05, and was then bought by Parma. In 2006, Parma released him and he went on to join Ascoli on a free transfer.
On 10 May 2007, Delvecchio and Ascoli mutually agreed to terminate his contract following a combination of a knee injury and Ascoli's relegation to Serie B, the latter following a 1–0 loss to Torino three days earlier. He scored twice in ten appearances for the club.
After one season of inactivity, Delvecchio decided to abandon professional football altogether and accept an offer from Eccellenza Lazio side Pescatori Ostia, where he scored 34 goals throughout the season.
As of the end of 2004, he has scored three goals in 14 starts for the senior team; his first international goal came against France in the Euro 2000 final. Delvecchio travelled to Korea with the 2002 World Cup squad, but did not play.
