Simone Romagnoli (born 9 February 1990 in Cremona) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a defender for Serie A club Carpi.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Romagnoli joined Milan from Cremonese in January 2007, shortly before turning 17.[1] Throughout his time in the club's youth system, he has been a member of the under-17 squad who won the Campionato Nazionale Allievi in 2007,[2] as well as the captain of the under-20 side who won the Coppa Italia Primavera in 2010, 25 years after their last success.[3][4]

During the 2009–10 season, Romagnoli also started being selected for the first-team.[4] In particular, he was named on the bench for a league match against Palermo, though he did not come on.[5]


In order to gain some first team experience, Romagnoli was loaned out to Prima Divisione club Foggia for the 2010–11 season.[6] He made his official debut for the club in the first game of the Coppa Italia Lega Pro group stage against L'Aquila — which Foggia won 2–1 – on 14 August 2010.[7] The next week, in the first league game of the season, he also scored his maiden goal with a header from a corner.[8]


On 8 July 2011, after the end of the loan to the Foggia, he moved from Milan to the Serie B team Pescara on a co-ownership deal.[9]

International career[edit]

He made his debut with the Italy U-21 team on 4 June 2012, in a match against Republic of Ireland.
