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).

Fiorentina[edit]

In July 2004, Dainelli signed for newly promoted team Fiorentina, in a co-ownership deal with Brescia. On January 2005, Fiorentina immediately bought all of the remain registration rights.

Dainelli was the team captain after Christian Riganò left the club in summer 2005,[citation needed] a position which he hold until his transfer to Genoa.

At the end of 2006–07 season, due to his contract expiring on summer, some rumor linked him with Juventus and other Italian clubs,[citation needed] but on 9 June 2007, he finally signed a new four-year contract extension with Fiorentina.

In summer 2009, ACF Fiorentina prepared to sell the captain by signing Cesare Natali in order to increase the depth of the bench. Alessandro Gamberini, Per Krøldrup and Dainelli rotated at the starting pair of the central defender.

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