Daniele Galloppa (born 15 May 1985) is an Italian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Serie B club Modena. Galloppa is a central midfield playmaker with outstanding reading of the game, excellent vision and an ability to deliver incisive passes.[citation needed] Despite his ability and reputation as a promising prospect in Italian football, he has struggled with several injuries throughout his career.[1][2]

Club career[edit]


In August 2006 he was loaned to Serie A club Ascoli.[3]


On 30 January 2007 he was loaned to A.C. Siena. On 17 February 2007 he played his first club match for Siena against Milan.[4]

Galloppa was sold to Siena on 9 July 2007, in a co-ownership deal for €1.1 million.[5] In June 2008 Siena signed the remain 50% registration rights of Galloppa for €1.75M; 50% registration rights of Gianluca Curci for €1.75M; Roma signed keeper Artur for €750,000, Simone Loria for €2.8 million in exchange.[6] Thus only €50,000 cash was involved.


On 26 June 2009 he left Siena to join Parma in a co-ownership deal, for €5M.[7][8] Parma also signed Manuel Coppola for €3M[9] and Siena signed Francesco Parravicini for €2.5M and half of the registration rights of Reginaldo for €2.5M.[7] This only €3 million cash was involved in the mega swap deals.

Galloppa instantly became a fixture in a newly promoted side that finished in an excellent seventh position in the 2009–10 season. In June 2010 the co-ownership between Parma and Siena on Galloppa and Reginaldo were renewed.[10] The following season was disrupted by an anterior cruciate ligament injury to his left knee he sustained in a pre-season friendly against Shakhtar Donetsk on 10 August 2010, which kept him out until January 2011;[1][2][11] as a result Galloppa was able to make only 11 appearances (six as a substitute) all season. Nevertheless, his registration was bought outright by Parma in June 2011.[12] Parma signed him for the pre-agreed price of €5M,[7] which Siena got Reginaldo also for the pre-agreed price of €2.5M[7] as well as full registration rights of Ângelo for €2.5M, which a year before was a free agent.[7]

On 21 October 2012, Galloppa injured the cruciate ligament of his left knee once again in a league match against Sampdoria, which ruled him out for the remainder of the season; he turned to action in the summer of 2013, in time for Parma's summer training camp.[2] On 31 July 2013 Galloppa injured himself in a friendly match against Olympique de Marseille, rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament of his right knee.[13] He returned to action for the final match of the 2013–14 season.[2] The next season, Galloppa made 19 appearances for Parma.[2]


Following Parma's bankruptcy, on 8 September 2015 Galloppa was signed by Serie B club Modena F.C., joining Hernán Crespo at the side, who had previously coached him at Parma.[14] After making 15 appearances during the first half of the 2015–16 season, on 7 February 2016, Galloppa suffered yet another injury to the cruciate ligament of his right knee in a 0–0 home draw against Cesena, which ruled him out for the remainder of the season; this was his fourth major knee injury in five years.[1][15][16][17]

International career[edit]

Galloppa was the member of Italian U-20 squad at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship.[18] He scored two goals in the tournament, one in Italy's final match of the group stage on 18 June, a 4–1 win against Canada,[19] and one in a 3–1 win against the United States in the round of 16, on 21 June,[20] as Italy reached the quarter-finals of the tournament, only to lose to Morocco on penalties; Galloppa missed Italy's first penalty in the resulting shoot-out.[19] He was later also capped for the Olympic U-21 team at the 2008 Toulon Tournament, which the Italians proceded to win.[21]

On 6 June 2009 he made his senior national team debut in a friendly match in Pisa against Northern Ireland, coming on as a substitue in the 3–0 win.[22] He made his second appearance for Italy later that year, in a 1–0 friendly home win against Sweden in Cesena, on 18 November.[23]
