Since 2013 he changed his employer each season. He was a player for Sorrento in 2013–14 season. In summer 2014 he moved to Romanian Liga II, but moving back to Carrarese in the same window by terminating the contract. However, the Romanian club did not file the transfer in time before the closure of Italian transfer window (on 1 September), thus Carrarese signed Antonio Di Nardo instead.[8]
