Football career[edit]

Grippo came through the ranks in the FC Basel youth system and played for two years in their reserve team. He was sent out on a loan to feeder club FC Concordia Basel during the 2007–08 season.[1] He originally had a half season-long loan spell at Concordia Basel but this was extended in December into a full season loan.

In Summer 2008 he joined AC Bellinzona on loan, but just one month later, on 5 August, he signed for A.C. Chievo Verona of Italian Serie A on a permanent contract.[2]

He made his first appearance for Chievo Verona on 11 January 2009, which resulted in a 1–1 draw against FC Bologna.

Grippo signed for Lugano in summer 2011. After only one year he transferred to Servette on 15 July 2012, signing a 3-year contract.[3] He made his debut in a 5-1 loss away defeat against Lausanne-Sport.

On 19 December 2013 the Swiss Football League (SFL) announced that Grippo had signed for Vaduz.
