Dario Bonetti (born August 5, 1961 in San Zeno Naviglio, Brescia, Italy) is an Italian football (soccer) manager for Lega Pro Prima Divisione team Valle del Giovenco and former defender. He is the elder brother of Ivano Bonetti.


Playing career

Bonetti made his professional debut in the 1978-79 season with Brescia. He then moved to AS Roma in 1980, and played for the giallorossi until 1986, except for a one season spell at Sampdoria in 1982-83. In 1986 he signed for AC Milan, but failed to impress and moved to Verona only one year later. In 1989 he transferred to Juventus, where he played two seasons. A return to Sampdoria in 1991 was followed by a single season at SPAL in 1992, and retirement in 1993.

In all his whole playing career in the Serie A, Dario Bonetti was suspended for a total of 39 matches, this being as of 2009 an absolute record.

Managing career

After his retirement, Dario Bonetti became coach of amateur Genoa side Sestrese in 1999, with his brother Ivano as player. Both brothers then jointly managed Scottish team Dundee from 2000 to 2002, with Dario officially acting as Ivano's technical assistant.[1][2] On February 2005, Dario Bonetti was then appointed head coach of Serie C2 club Potenza.[3] He then announced a surprising move to Hungarian side MFC Sopron on February 2006,[4] thus joining fellow Italian Giuseppe Signori. Bonetti was then sacked on May 2006, after the final matchday, a 1-0 home loss to Rákospalotai EAC,[5] but made a comeback at the Hungarian side on March 2007.[6] On June 22, 2007 he was unveiled as new head coach of Italian Serie C1 team Gallipoli.[7]

On December 2008 he was appointed as new head coach of Lega Pro Prima Divisione team Juve Stabia.

On June 23, 2009 he was appointed as the new head coach of Liga I team Dinamo Bucureşti, the Italian coach replacing Mircea Rednic.[8]. He was sacked by Nicolae Badea, head of Administrative Council of Dinamo Bucharest, as a result of Bonetti's public statements about Dinamo shareholders on October 3, 2009. [9]

On November 9, 2009, Bonetti was announced as the new head coach of Lega Pro Prima Divisione team Valle del Giovenco.
