Marco Capuano (born 14 October 1991) is an Italian footballer who plays as a centre back for Serie B club Pescara and the Italy national under-21 football team.[1]

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Capuano began playing with Torino youth academy in 2009, but the experience was not a positive one and at the end of the season his contract was not renewed.[2][3] Capuano then transferred to Renato Curi Juniores before moving to Pescara in 2010.

Pescara[edit]

Capuano made his debut with the senior team in the away draw for 1–1 against Frosinone. He obtained 10 appearances in the 2010–11 Serie B season. He also signed a new 3-year contract in December 2010.[4]

During the 2011-12 season, Capuano became a more regular starter under new manager Zdenek Zeman.[5] His run in the starting eleven was soured by a controversial straight red card which led to a penalty in the 20 November match against Gubbio.

He made his Serie A debut on 26 August 2012, in the match lost 3–0 against Internazionale.

International career[edit]

On 1 June 2011 he made his debut with the Italy U-21 team, in the game against Côte d'Ivoire.
