Sergio Porrini (born 8 November 1968 in Milan) is an Italian former football coach and former player, mostly famous for his periods at Juventus and Scottish club Rangers. He is currently in charge as head coach of Serie D club Pontisola.

Career[edit]

Playing career[edit]

Porrini, a right-back, made his senior debut in 1989 for Atalanta, then joining Juventus in 1993, with whom he won two Serie A medals, one Coppa Italia medal and a Champions League medal in 4 seasons with the Turin club.

He joined Scottish club Rangers in 1997, and won two Scottish Premier League and Scottish Cup medals, and also a League Cup one. He started off his Rangers career at centre-back alongside Richard Gough but new manager Dick Advocaat soon moved him to right-back where he remained until he left Rangers, to resume his football career in Italy at Alessandria. After a single season with Padova, Porrini joined lowly Pizzighettone in 2004 and retired after five full seasons spent with the small Lombardian club at Lega Pro Prima Divisione and Lega Pro Seconda Divisione levels.

International career[edit]

Porrini gained two international caps for Italy in 1993, while at Juventus.

Coaching career[edit]

After his retirement, he agreed to stay with Pizzighettone as youth coach for a season, then filling a similar role at Pergocrema. In August 2011 he was then named head coach of Serie D club Colognese.[1]

On 23 June 2012 he was then named head coach of Serie D club Pontisola.
