Sandro Cois (born 9 June 1972 in Fossano) is a retired Italian football player. He has enjoyed a long career playing primarily as a defensive midfielder, although he was capable of playing in several midfield and defensive positions, due to his own tactical intelligence, stamina, tenacity, and versatility.[1]

He played for several clubs, including Torino and Piacenza. He is perhaps best known for his spell at Fiorentina in the mid-late 90s where he won over the fans with his tireless running and tenacious play, becoming important to the side as the less glamorous foil to playmakers like Rui Costa and Domenico Morfeo.

It was during this period that he broke into the Italy national football team and was a participant at the 1998 FIFA World Cup, although he never became a regular in the side, winning just 2 caps.[2]
