Matteo Rubin (born 9 July 1987 in Bassano del Grappa) is an Italian footballer who plays as a defender for Modena. Matteo is a strong running left-back who is as keen to get forward as he is tenacious in his defending. He has a strong left foot which is put to good use at free kicks and corners.

Club career[edit]

Matteo Rubin signed his first professional footballing contract for Serie C1 team Cittadella before signing for Torino in Serie A.[1] When becoming a first team regular Matteo suffered a ligament injury to his left knee which kept him out of the season for 6 months, sustained while playing for Italy U21 team against Greece.[2]

In August 2010 he was loaned to Bologna, in exchange with Marco Bernacci.[3]

The following August, having returned to Torino, he moved on loan to Parma, who were without a recognised left-back after the departure of Luca Antonelli seven months earlier and Marco Pisano earlier that summer.[4] Midfielders Massimo Gobbi and Francesco Modesto had previous filled in in that position.

On 3 January 2012, Bologna announced that Rubin returned to the club on loan for the remainder of the season.[5] On 11 March, he scored a calamitous own goal against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico.

After returning from his loan spell at Bologna, Torino sold the rights to Rubin in co-ownership to Siena.[6]
