Marco Donadel (born 21 April 1983) is an Italian football midfielder, currently playing for Canadian Side Montreal Impact.

Club career[edit]

Donadel is a youth product of Milan, playing for the youth side between 1998 and 2002, winning the Torneo di Viareggio in 1999 and 2001, before being promoted to the senior side. While on the books of Milan he was loaned to Lecce,[1] Parma (co-ownership), Sampdoria[2] and finally Fiorentina in January 2005. After a successful half-season long loan with Fiorentina, he was signed on a permanent basis. In 2005–06 he was a regular for coach Cesare Prandelli, who had already appreciated the skills of Donadel, as they were together at Parma. In June 2007, he was offered a new contract which would last until June 2011.[3]

On 24 June 2011, he signed a four-year contract with Napoli. During his stay with Napoli he only appeared in four league matches and during the 2013/14 season he was sent on loan to Verona where he was a regular starter for the club. Once his loan spell with Verona concluded Donadel went on trial with Major League Soccer side Montreal Impact. Donadel officially signed with the Montreal Impact on 1 December 2014.[4] His 30 yard strike in a 3–0 home win against Columbus Crew, on 11 July 2015,[5] was voted MLS goal of the week for the 19th week of the 2015 MLS season.[6]

International career[edit]

Donadel was the captain of Italy under-21 team between 2004 and 2006, and won the 2004 European Under-21 Football Championship, totalling 31 appearances and 1 goal. Donadel also won a bronze medal with Italy at the 2004 Summer Olympics football tournament. He also holds a passport for the country of Liechtenstein.[7]
