Early career[edit]

Born in Pontedera, Province of Pisa, Dainelli started his professional career at Empoli. He spent his early years on loan at Modena (Serie C1), Cavese (Serie C2) and Fidelis Andria (Serie C1).

On 7 August 2012, he agreed a permanent deal with Chievo.

Livorno[edit]

On 16 July 2018, Dainelli signed with Livorno.[5] On 13 May 2019, he announced his retirement.[6]
