Football Italian is proud to present the definitive guide to the life and career of one of Italy’s most talented players.
It has been written by Carlo Zaccaria, who played for Juventus, AC Milan and AC Milan Milan.
Carlo’s story is one of the most unique in the history of football and one that has captivated fans around the world.
He joined Juventus in 2002 and played under Giovanni Trapattoni, his idol and fellow Italian international, and then his idol-in-arms Fabio Capello.
Carlo was one of a number of young Italian players to arrive in Italy, and at 19 he was the youngest player to start for Italy in the Champions League, where he became the youngest-ever goalscorer to score in the competition.
Carlo scored 17 goals in his debut campaign with Juventus, the youngest goal-scorer in Serie A history.
Zaccaria was sent to England, where Carlo became the first ever young Italian player to make his professional debut in the Premier League.
Carlo made his first-team debut at the age of 17 and his first professional start came in a 3-0 win against Everton in October 2007.
After a successful spell at Southampton, Carlo returned to Italy for the 2008/09 season, this time playing in Serie B, where his form continued.
Carlo also played in the 2010/11 season for Lazio and was loaned out to Inter Milan in 2011.
Carlo joined Juventus for the 2014/15 season, where the Bianconeri reached the Champions’ League semi-finals.
Carlo did not feature for the club, but was given a two-year deal with Inter.
In the 2015/16 season, Carlo was back in Serie C and made his return to Serie A, where this time he started in the first leg of the final against Juventus, scoring the winner to earn the Biancocelesti a place in the next round.
At Inter Milan, Carlo made a return to the Premier Liga for the first time since joining Juventus, and his goalscoring form took him to the Champions Cup semi-final against Barcelona, where Inter lost 2-1.
Carlo returned at the end of the season and scored a goal to take Inter to the next phase of the Champions league, where they were beaten by Real Madrid.
The Italian striker was then loaned back to Juventus for next season, and this time his form picked up, and he went on to score 11 goals in all competitions.
Carlo then joined Lazio, where, for the second season in succession, he scored a record 30 goals in Serie D. Carlo took a permanent place in Luciano Spalletti’s starting eleven at Inter, and during the 2016/17 season he scored 16 goals, including four in a 1-1 draw against Milan.
While Carlo’s form did not increase as dramatically as the previous season, he was able to find the net nine times, which helped him earn the Serie A Player of the Season award.
During the 2017/18 season, with the team’s season still on the brink, Carlo decided to return to Inter, where Zaccari was the new sporting director, and Carlo continued his form, this season scoring a staggering 20 goals.
However, this year Carlo was unable to find his form again, and Zaccarie was fired.
Carlo is now the only player to have played in all four of the Italian leagues and the Champions.
Carlo has also scored in the last five Europa League qualifiers, and is currently the top scorer in Serie F, which currently has 11 players on its books.
It is no secret that Carlo is a highly sought after player, and Juventus have been in the market for a striker since the start of the 2017-18 season.
Carlo joins the Juventus squad, who currently sit top of Serie A with six points from four matches.
