Paolo Tramezzani (born 30 July 1970) is an Italian professional football coach and former player.

Club career[edit]

Tramezzani was born at Castelnovo ne' Monti in Emilia. He started his career at Italian team Prato, and also played for Cosenza, Lucchese, Inter Milan, Venezia, Cesena and Piacenza before transferring to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 1998, managed at the time by Christian Gross. Although scoring on his debut in a friendly against Peterborough United,[1] his time at Spurs was short-lived. He was transferred to Pistoese in Italy for £400,000. He later returned to Piacenza, and finished his career at Atalanta.[2][3]

Managerial career[edit]

From 2011 to 2016, Tramezzani was assistant coach of Albania national team, under manager Gianni De Biasi.[4]

On 21 December 2016, he was presented as coach of Lugano.[5] In June 2017, Tramezzani was appointed head coach of Sion[6] before being sacked in October.[7]

In October 2018, Tramezzani was appointed as the new manager of APOEL.[8] He guided them to their seventh league title after a 3–0 home victory over Apollon Limassol,[9] and also reached the final of the Cypriot Cup, where they lost 0–2 to AEL Limassol.[10]

Tramezzani was sacked on 8 August 2019 following a 1–2 loss against Qarabağ in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.[11]
