Domenico Criscito - Genoa-Palermo - Serie A (Grazia Neri)
The Neapolitan defender started his young career in Campania, but Genoa and Juventus scouts noticed him and his qualities early and bought him toghether. So Criscito is co-owned by the Bianconeri and the Grifoni.

After a good season with Genoa in Serie B, he came back to Juventus in 2007, but his performances left soemthing to be desired. After a few matches, former boss Claudio Ranieri chose to relegate him to the bench. In January 2009 he made his return to  Genoa, where Gasperini turned him into a very effective left wing-back. His first match for the Italian National Team was at the Under-17 level in 2003. On 12 August 2009 he made his debut with Lippi's Italy. He has 4 caps thus far, but the Italian coach seems to be very confident about his qualities ahead of World Cup

Did you know?

In Roma 2-2 Juventus, on 23 September 2007, it was the match that highlighted Criscito's failure at Juventus. The young defender was very poor and beaten often by Francesco Totti and Ranieri did not use him often anymore.
