Franck Eddy Signorino (born 19 September 1981) is a French footballer who plays as a left back.

Football career[edit]

Born in Nogent-sur-Marne, Val-de-Marne, Signorino made his professional debuts with FC Metz, helping it return to Ligue 1 in his second year. After a final season where he paired up with Franck Ribéry, he signed for FC Nantes.

In 2007, following Nantes' relegation from the first division, a host of clubs, including Deportivo de La Coruña, Getafe CF, UD Almería, Birmingham City and Newcastle United expressed an interest in the player. Eventually, Signorino moved to Getafe on 30 July 2007,[1] making his competitive debut against Tottenham Hotspur in the group stage of the UEFA Cup following a period of injury (2–1 away win, 90 minutes played).[2] His La Liga debut came on 16 December, featuring 67 minutes as a substitute in a 1–3 home defeat to Villarreal CF.[3]

Signorino spent the entire the 2008–09 campaign in the sidelines, nursing a serious tibia injury.[4][5][6] In January 2010, after being demoted to third-string left-back, he signed with second division side FC Cartagena on loan; in the very last minutes of the following summer transfer window he was cut by Getafe[7] and, subsequently, joined S. du Pays de Charleroi on a one-year contract, appearing regularly for the Belgian team but suffering relegation from the Pro League.

On 5 September 2011, Signorino agreed to a one-year deal with Stade Lavallois, returning to his country after four years.[8] He continued to compete in his country's top division in the following years, with Stade de Reims and Metz.[9]
