The first experiences

In 1998, he was appointed in charge of the Esordienti youth team at Inter, then filling the same role at Ravenna. In 2001, he moved to Bulgaria to join Luigi Simoni at CSKA Sofia, working alongside him also in his following experiences at Ancona, Napoli and Siena. In 2005, he took his first head coaching role, as boss of Lucchese, with Simoni as technical director.
In June 2007 he was appointed new Primavera youth coach of Sampdoria by Giuseppe Marotta, winning the Campionato Nazionale Primavera and the Coppa Italia Primavera in 2008. In 2009, he left Sampdoria to become new Primavera coach at Inter, managing to win a Torneo di Viareggio championship in 2011.
He left Inter in the summer of 2011 to accept the head coaching position of ambitious Serie B side Sassuolo, guiding the small Emilian club into the race for a historical promotion to the Italian top flight, coming up to the semifinal playoffs.
From the 10 June 2012 to the 17 December 2012 he was the head coach of Padova, still in Serie B. He was reinstated as manager of Padova on 20 March 2013, and left the club by the end of the season.
