Torino & false accounting scandal[edit]

In January 2002, he swapped club with Torino Calcio's Emanuele Calaiò, which later found that the pure player exchange were with inflated price tag on both players, in order to increase the selling profit on the balance sheet. Despite it also created another investment/cost on players and counter-weight the profit, but also created an asset with higher nominal value than its fair value. The deals later fined by Italian Football Federation (FIGC) 8 years later.[1]

In July 2003 he returned to Ternana in permanent deal as the club exchanged him with Calaiò for a second time, he also signed a length deal partially to amortise his nominal price tag in years. He left for Meda of Serie C2 that season. With theLombard club, he played a career high so far with 24 league games in a single season.

After only played 3 times in the first half of 2004–05 Serie B, he left for Serie C2 club Potenza. In the next season, he only played once in Serie B. Cibocchi returned to Serie C2 again in 2006–07 season.[4] After Ternana relegated to Serie C1 in 2007, he returned to his mother club and signed a new 3-year contract.[5] He played 23 Prima Divisione/Serie C1 matches for Ternana since his return.

From Lega Pro to Serie B[edit]

After failed to find a club in summer transfer window, he left for Serie D (top division of regional/amateur/non-professional leagues) side Deruta.[7] However, he was signed by Serie B side PortoSummaga in December 2010[8] (paperwork completed on 7 January 2011).
