Edoardo Pazzagli (born 11 April 1989) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper. He is currently a free agent, after being released by Serie A club Milan in 2015.

Club career[edit]

Pazzagli was a youth product of ACF Fiorentina. Pazzagli became the U-20 side's first choice in the 2006–07 season, ahead of Paolo Pincio. Pazzagli was also named in the B List senior squad for the 2007–08 UEFA Cup.[1] That season his was the first team's fourth keeper (and the senior side's third keeper in Europe), behind Sébastien Frey, Cristiano Lupatelli and Vlada Avramov (who was not listed in UEFA Cup squad). His starting role in the domestic youth league was taken by Andrea Seculin in January 2008.

Pazzagli officially graduated from the Fiorentina youth team at age 19. Pazzagli was loaned to Prato for the 2008–09 season, which was followed by a spell with Andria in the 2009–10 season.

In January 2010 he left for Prato in a co-ownership deal, for a peppercorn fee of €500.[2][3]

In June 2011 he returned to Florence. His father, Andrea, died in July 2011[4] and was also a professional goalkeeper. Edoardo Pazzagli was the third choice keeper of la Viola, wearing the number 60 shirt. His contract with La Viola expired on 30 June 2012. At the end of season he joined his father's former club A.C. Milan on free transfer, but after spending the pre-season with the team he was sent on loan to Prima Divisione side Monza.[5] In the following years he played on loan for Ascoli, Pistoiese and Lucchese (in the Italian Lega Pro Prima Divisione),[6] and was later released by Milan in 2015. He is currently a free agent.

International career[edit]

Pazzagli played once for the Italy under-17 side in 2006 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship qualification, as the backup of Riccardo Delfino. He was the starting keeper in the elite round, ahead of Eros Corradini. He was subsequently directly promoted to the U-19 side, and played in the 2007 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship elite qualification, ahead of Ugo Gabrieli. Pazzagli was not selected by manager Francesco Rocca to the 2008 edition of the final tournament. Instead he was picked by the feeder team of the Italian U-21 side, the Italy U-20 team by Massimo Piscedda in the second half of 2007–08 season.[7] However he did not make his U-20 debut. Since leaving the youth system of Fiorentina, Pazzagli did not win any official caps either. Pazzagli played an unofficial friendly against Serie D Best Eleven in 2009, for the Italian "U-19" team as an overage player (the team was coached by U-19 coach Piscedda, who was appointed as U-19 coach as of 2008, but consisted of U-20 players).[8] Most of the players of that inferior squad did not go to the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup, including Pazzagli.
