Luca Antonelli (born 11 February 1985) is an Italian footballer who plays as a left back for Serie A club Milan.

Biography[edit]

Antonelli was born in Monza. He is the son of Roberto Antonelli, a former footballer who played for AC Milan from 1977 until 1982 as a striker.

Club career[edit]

After spending a few seasons in the AC Milan youth teams, Antonelli made his first team debut in a Coppa Italia game against Brescia on 8 November 2006. On 23 December, he made also his Serie A debut, in a match against Udinese.

In the summer of 2007 Antonelli was loaned out to Serie B club Bari, but he impressed so much that during the January transfer window Parma secured him on loan from Milan for the rest of the Serie A season. He made his first appearance for the Gialloblu against Livorno on 16 March 2008.

In June 2008, Parma had acquired half of the contractual rights from Milan, for €750,000.[1] While the following summer, he was fully transferred for another €2.5 million, which Milan made a final income of €1.75 million as the value of the retained half had increased from €0.75 million to €2.5 million.[1][2]

Genoa[edit]

In January 2011, Antonelli was transferred to Genoa for €7 million. Genoa also signed Alberto Paloschi for €4.35 million and sold Raffaele Palladino (€3M) and Francesco Modesto (€2.5M) to Parma.[3] The club soon sold Domenico Criscito as Antonelli had succeeded Criscito as full back.

Return to AC Milan[edit]

In February 2015, Antonelli moved back to his debut club Milan, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract.[4] On his debut for his return to Milan on 7 February 2015, Antonelli scored a goal from a corner kick off a header to tie the match with Juventus at 1-1, which did not prove decisive, as Milan fell 3-1 final.

International career[edit]

He made his debut with the Italian national team on 3 September 2010 against Estonia in Tallinn.
