Alberto Cossentino (born 10 September 1988) is an Italian football defender who plays for Siracusa.

Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

A product of the rosanero's youth system, Cossentino made his first team debut with the rosanero being featured in the starter lineup in a Coppa Italia 2006-07 match against Sampdoria, and then a UEFA Cup 2006-07 game against Fenerbahçe. He was confirmed to the rosanero first team squad also for the 2007–08 campaign, and finally made his Serie A debut on 30 March 2008 at Stadio San Paolo, against Napoli.[1]

On July 2008 Cossentino accepted a loan to Serie B side Triestina in order to gain more first team experience.[2] However, he did not manage to play a single match for the alabardati, and returned to Palermo on January 2009.[3][4]

On July 2009 Cossentino agreed another move on loan, and spent the 2009–10 season with Lega Pro Prima Divisione side Novara,[5] where he played only six games throughout a season that ended with his side winning the league and ensuring promotion to Serie B. On July 2010 Palermo announced to have sold half of Cossentino's registration rights to Novara.[6] On 29 January 2011 he was loaned to Gela.[7] Cossentino made his second comeback to Novara on June 2011, as his co-ownership was solved in favour of the piemontesi. On 30 August 2011 he moved on loan to Andria BAT.

On 13 July 2012, he joined Reggiana on a permanent deal. He was released on 7 January 2015.[8]

He joined Modena for the 2016–17 season, but was released later in January 2017 and successively signed by another Lega Pro club, Siracusa, on 2 February 2017 as a free transfer.[9]

International career[edit]

Cossentino has also appeared for the Italian team at Under-19 and Under-20 level.[10]
