During his time at Como, Gobbo made also a single appearance in the Italian U-21 team in 1981. He then played for several Serie B and C teams before to retire from professional football in 1995.
In 1996, he became coach of amateur team Sondrio. In 1998, he signed for Canzese, a Prima Categoria club which he led to two consecutive promotions up to Eccellenza. In 2001, he obtained the coaching license with a top grade of 110/110. After a short spell at Serie D team Usmate, which he did not manage to save from relegation, Gobbo was appointed coach of Serie C2 club Pro Vercelli in November 2002, and saved the team from relegation. In April 2004 he was appointed by Carrarese, another Serie C2 team in danger of relegation, which he saved too. He coached Carrarese also in 2004–2005, missing a spot in the promotion playoffs. He was fired in 2005, after the fifth matchday.
