Daniele Paponi (born 16 April 1988) is an Italian footballer who plays for Juve Stabia.



Paponi started his career with Ancona, playing into the biancorossi youth ranks. In the summer 2004, following the folding of his club, Paponi became a free agent; he then accepted an offer from Parma and joined the ducali youth team.

He made his Serie A debut at the age of 17 on 22 October 2005, then also making his debut at the European level in the 2006–07 UEFA Cup, scoring also two goals. His first Serie A goal came in an away league match played against Messina on 20 December 2006, and ended in a 1–1 draw: Paponi's equaliser goal, a reversed bicycle kick immediately dubbed as "scorpion kick", was saluted among the finest scored in the league season. Nevertheless, Paponi struggled to find space in the first team in the following 2007–08 season, and on January 2008 he accepted a loan move to Serie B's Cesena, where he scored two goals in 21 games.

For the 2008–09 season he returned to Parma, then in Serie B, playing seven games and scoring twice, but on January 2009 he was loaned out again, this time to Rimini as part of the deal that brought then-Serie B topscorer Daniele Vantaggiato to join the gialloblu.


On 10 June 2010 Parma exchanged the 22-year-old striker with Gabriele Paonessa of Bologna in co-ownership deal.[1] Both players' 50% registration rights was valued €600,000. Paponi signed a 5-year contract worth €120,000 in net annually plus bonuses.[2] The deal never a successful deal on the field as both players failed to take part in the first team, but a successful financial deal that both club had a player selling profit of €1.2 million in 2009–10 season but only would counter-weight by the amortization of the buying cost of the same amount in next 5 seasons (2010 to 2015, the contract length of both players) plus VAT as interests. Paponi only played once in 2011–12 Serie A. In June 2012, Paonessa was definitively under contract with Parma as well as Paponi to Bologna.[3]

In 2012–13 Paponi missed a few games due to injuries.[4][5][6][7] However, his own quality had limited his chance to play: only 3 games in 2012–13 Serie A, all as substitutes. In April 2013 he left for Canada to have a trial with Montreal Impact.[8]


On 19 April 2013 Paponi joined Montreal Impact on loan until 31 December 2013.[9] He has officially scored his first goal for Montreal Impact on 29 June 2013 in an MLS match against Colorado Rapids, where he actually went on to score 2.


On 4 August 2014 he was signed by the third division club Ancona in temporary deal.[10]


In summer 2015 Paponi was signed by U.S. Latina Calcio, with Marco Crimi moved to opposite direction. Paponi signed a 2-year contract. Paponi left Latina for Juve Stabia on January 19 2017.[11][12]
