Daniele Arrigoni (born August 28, 1959 in Cesena) is an Italian football (soccer) manager.

Playing career

Arrigoni, a defender, made fifteen Serie A appearances in his first professional playing season with Cesena, and mostly played at Serie B and Serie C levels for several different teams, before retiring in 1993.

Managing career

Arrigoni's debut as coach came in 1994 for a small Emilia-Romagna Serie D team, Castel San Pietro and he won with this team the Italian Serie D Championship. He then coached Vis Pesaro, where he obtained the first promotion in his coaching career (in 1999/2000, from Serie C2 to Serie C1 after playoffs), and after another impressive season he was called to coach newly-promoted Serie B team Messina. During that season, he was fired, but then recalled, and hardly managed to save his team from relegation.

In 2002/2003, Palermo hired him to replace Ezio Glerean just at the first matchday, but he was sacked as well at the twentieth. Arrigoni went on to become Serie C2's Frosinone boss in 2003/2004, leading the club to win the league.

In 2004/2005, Arrigoni was surprisingly called to coach a Serie A team, Cagliari Calcio. Also thanks to outstanding players such as Antonio Langella, Gianfranco Zola, Mauro Esposito and David Suazo, Arrigoni went on leading his team to a very good season that ended in 12th place. Arrigoni, who had left Cagliari at the end of the season in order to join Torino, then cancelled by the federation because of financial troubles, was recalled to Cagliari in 2005/2006, but resigned soon after following heavy protests from its supporters. In 2006/2007, he is coaching Livorno, with the additional opportunity to make his debut in a European competition, UEFA Cup in the case.

On 14 January 2007, Livorno chairman Aldo Spinelli declared his willingness to sack Arrigoni after his side lost 5-1 away to Atalanta B.C.. However, after the players called for his return, with captain Cristiano Lucarelli declaring "The team is united against the club", Arrigoni was re-instated on his job two days later. However, his dismissal was only delayed, as he was finally sacked on March 21 and replaced by Fernando Orsi. On June 2007 he was unveiled as Bologna's boss with the goal to lead the rossoblu back to Serie A and on May 2008 achieved automatic promotion back to the top flight after finishing second in Serie B. Despite an impressive win at San Siro against AC Milan in the first league week, Arrigoni made a disappointing start in his season back in the top flight, and was ultimately sacked on November 3, 2008 following a crush 5–1 loss against relegation-battling rivals Cagliari.[1]
