Andrea Salvatore Cocco (born 8 April 1986) is an Italian footballer who plays as a striker for Serie B side Cesena, on loan from Pescara.

Career[edit]

Cagliari[edit]

Cocco made his Serie A debut on 21 December 2005 for Cagliari in a 1-0 defeat away to Parma F.C.. On 31 January 2007 he left for Venezia.[1] and on 31 August 2007 for Pistoiese.[2]

Cocco was sold to Rovigo in a co-ownership deal in August 2008.[3] In June 2009 Cagliari bought Cocco and Andrea Peana (from Triestina) back, but sold them to Alghero immediately[4] in co-ownership deals (later Simone Aresti also joined), where Cocco also met ex-team-mate Alessio Cossu, Nicola Lai and Enrico Cotza (in January). In June 2010, few week before the bankrupt of Alghero, Cagliari bought back Cocco and Aresti for €500.[5]

AlbinoLeffe[edit]

Few days after Cagliari signed Gabriele Perico and Simon Laner from AlbinoLeffe in temporary deals for €750,000 (€375,000 each),[6] Cocco was sold to AlbinoLeffe in co-ownership deal for €50,000 in a 3-year deal, making Cagliari only paid AlbinoLeffe €700,000 in cash.[6][7] In June 2011 Cagliari bought back Cocco for €150,000,[6] as well as bought Perico in a co-ownership deal for €375,000, making Cagliari paid AlbinoLeffe €500,000 cash that summer.[8]

On 4 July 2011 Cocco returned to AlbinoLeffe in a temporary deal with option to sign outright for €200,000.[8][9] Despite the club relegated, the option was excised in a 4-year contract.[10] On the same day Perico was acquired outright for another €200,000, thus the two transfer fees were canceled each other.[8] However, Cocco was sold by AlbinoLeffe in the same summer.

Verona and loans[edit]

On 30 July 2012, Cocco was signed by Hellas Verona in a co-ownership deal with AlbinoLeffe, for €290,000 fee in a 3-year contract.[11][12][13] In June 2013 the co-ownership deal was renewed.[14]

After a one-year stint with Verona in August 2013, he joined Reggina on a loan deal.[15] On 29 January 2014, he was again loaned to Portuguese Segunda Liga side Beira-Mar.[16]

In June 2014 Verona acquired Cocco and Laner outright from AlbinoLeffe for €500 each, with Simone Calvano returned to Verona also for €500.[17][18]

Vicenza[edit]

He moved to Vicenza on 8 August 2014 in a 2-year contract on a free transfer.[19][20] He missed few weeks due to an injury in 2015 pre-season.[21]

Pescara and loans[edit]

On 31 August 2015 Cocco was signed by fellow Serie B club Pescara.[22] On 3 August 2016 Cocco was loaned to fellow Serie B club Frosinone (with option to buy), which the team was relegated from Serie A.[23] After scoring just 1 league goal for the Lazio-based club, Cocco was loaned to another Serie B team Cesena on 16 January 2017.[24] He wore number 11 shirt for his new team.[25]
