Soccer is Andrea’s biggest passion, and he loves watching and following the Serie A, English Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and MLS every weekend. He was born and grew up in Turin, Italy and started to play soccer in 1995, only stopping in 2016 because of a back injury. Andrea was lucky to play for more than 20 years throughout Europe - mainly in Italy and England before starting his coaching career. As a coach, he loves to spend time teaching players the tactical side of the game, working on their soccer I.Q. and developing an offensive mindset team. Andrea holds a USSF C license, a Game Analysis Soccer HUB license, and a Sports Psychology and Individual Mental Skills license.
