Fernando Damián Tissone Rodrigues (born 24 July 1986) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a central midfielder


Early career[edit]

Tissone was born in Quilmes, Buenos Aires Province. He started his football career in Independiente's youth system before moving to neighbours Lanús.


After making only one appearance for Lanús, Tissone was scouted by Italian side Udinese, joining the club in 2005[citation needed] and making 26 Serie A appearances for the club, mainly as a substitute.


On 10 August 2006 Tissone was signed by Atalanta in a co-ownership deal, for €1.5 million in a five-year deal.[1][2] However, Udinese also acquired 50% registration rights of Michele Rinaldi for €800,000 and Christian Tiboni for €1.1 million,[1][2] Tissone played 33 games for the Bergamo-based club in 2006–07 Serie A season. In June 2007 the co-ownerships were renewed.

Tissone made 35 appearances in 2007–08 Serie A, missing only three games, including suspension for his 4th caution.

On 26 June 2008 Tissone returned to Udinese for €4.165 million, with Rinaldi and Tiboni returned to Atalanta for undisclosed fees (which Atalanta immediately write-down their value).[3][4]

Udinese return[edit]


On 22 July 2009 Tissone joined Sampdoria in a co-ownership from Udinese, for €2.5 million cash + 50% registration rights of Jonathan Rossini transfer fee, in a four-year contract.[5][6] He remained at the club for two seasons, appearing in 52 league matches and scoring once (against Brescia on 1 May 2011). The co-ownerships were renewed in June 2010[7] and June 2011.[8]

On 31 August 2011 Tissone was loaned to La Liga side RCD Mallorca.[9] He made his debut in the competition on 11 September, coming on as a late substitute in a 0–1 loss at Real Betis.[10]

Tissone featured regularly with the Balearic outfit during the 2011–12 campaign, and returned to Samp in June 2012. In June 2012 Sampdoria acquired Tissone outright from Udinese for an additional €100,000.[11][12] Tissone made 12 appearances in 2012–13 Serie A, for Sampdoria

On 29 January 2013 he returned to Mallorca, on loan until June, for €100,000.[13][14][15]


After Mallorca relegation, Tissone moved to fellow league team Málaga CF in a three-year deal on 6 July 2013 on a free transfer.[16]

Personal life[edit]

Tissone holds an Italian passport,[17] and is also eligible for Cape Verde due to his grandfather.[18]

Tissone's brother, Christian, is also a footballer, but spent the vast majority of his career representing Italian lower division sides, and also switched his nationality to Cape Verde.[19]
