Club career

Early career

He played for Fiorentina (1993-96), Venezia (1996-97), Reggina (1997-98) before joined Internazionale at age of 21.

Zanetti made his club debut for Internazionale on 26 August 1998 against FC Skonto before joined Cagliari along with Mohamed Kallon.

Roma

In summer 1999, he was signed by Roma in joint-ownership bid. He won one scudetto with Roma in 2000-01 season.

Internazionale

In June 2001, Zanetti re-joined Internazionale[1] He won 2 Coppa Italia, 1 Supercoppa Italiana and awarded as Serie A champion after Calciopoli scandal in 2006.

Juventus

Zanetti moved to Juventus in 2006 on a free transfer, despite the match-fixing controversy surrounding the Turin giants and their subsequent relegation. Zanetti was Luciano Moggi's final signing as the Juventus transfer director before his five year ban due to his role in the Calciopoli scandal. Zanetti won Serie B champion with Le Zebre in 2007 and back to UEFA Champions League in 2008.

Fiorentina

Zanetti signed by his first professional club Fiorentina on 10 August 2009[2], as the club was preparing to play at UEFA Champions League 2009–10 playoffs round. He signed a 2+1 contract. He is the second player to join La viola from Juventus in 2009-10 season after Marco Marchionni. Zanetti was tagged for €2 million[3] and deducted from Felipe Melo transfer fee. He made his debut for ACF Fiorentina on 29th September 2009 against Liverpool FC in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League. His assist led to Fiorentina's 1st goal, scored by young montenegrin Stevan Jovetić against Liverpool. Fiorentina eventually won the match 2-0.[4]

International career

Zanetti played for the Italian national team at the 2002 FIFA World Cup and Euro 2004. However, he has not been called up to the Italian national team since Euro 2004 by Giovanni Trapattoni successor Marcello Lippi, partly due to the solid Gennaro Gattuso-Andrea Pirlo partnership. Currently he has 17 international caps and 1 international goal.
