Paolo Vanoli - Assistant to first team head coach

Paolo Vanoli enjoyed a distinguished playing career and previously worked with Antonio Conte as an Under-19s coach for the Italian national team. His side reached the final of the European Under-19s Championship in 2016.

He is an assistant first team coach under our boss now having arrived in the summer of 2017.

A left-back in his playing days, Vanoli had great success as a member of the brilliant Parma team of the late 1990s, winning the UEFA Cup, the Coppa Italia (he scored in both finals, as did former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo) and the Italian Super Cup.

Vanoli counts Fiorentina and Verona among his other old clubs, and he also spent a season-and-a-half in Scotland at Rangers. He made two appearances for the Italian national team, scoring once.
