Sergiu Suciu (born 8 May 1990) is a Romanian footballer who currently plays for Crotone, on loan from Torino.

Club career[edit]


Sergiu moved to Italy with his parents at the age of 13 and soon became affiliated with Torino under club president Franco Cimminelli in 2003. However, due to lack of Italian residency he was unable to play in any official matches for some time.[1] After several years with the youth team, he stood out as one of the best players at the prestigious Torneo di Viareggio in 2009, scoring a brace against Bologna.[2]

After making the bench several times for the senior side, he made his Serie A debut for Torino on 31 May 2009 in a game against A.S. Roma when he came on as a last-minute substitute for Tommaso Vailatti.[citation needed] Torino were relegated at the end of the season and Sergiu was loaned to third division team Legnano, headed by former Torino youth coach Beppe Scienza. He was recalled by Torino on 1 February 2011 to play in the Torneo di Viareggio, but his season was abruptly ended after rupturing the ACL in his left knee.[3]

On 3 January 2011, he signed a new 4½-year contract, but was loaned again to Gubbio in Prima Divisione.[4] After attaining his Italian passport in the Summer of 2011, he became part of the Torino first team under Giampiero Ventura. He made his debut in Serie B on 24 September 2011 as a substitute during Torino-Nocerina. On 30 September 2011, he scored his first goal of the season in a 1–2 victory away to Sampdoria, but also injuring himself for 45 days.[citation needed]

On 26 May 2012 he was injured once again during Albinoleffe-Torino, tearing a ligament after a clash with an opponent.[5]

Juve Stabia[edit]

On 31 January 2013 he was loaned out to Serie B side Juve Stabia. He scored his first goal for the 'Vespe' on 19 May 2013 against Crotone. He returned to Torino at the end of the season, but on 3 July 2013 returned to Juve Stabia on loan.


In June 2014 he was loaned to Crotone.
