Playing

Gasperini entered the Juventus youth system at the age of 9; during his stay at the youth system, he won an Allievi Nazionali championship and was in the Primavera squad, which included Paolo Rossi and Sergio Brio, that placed runner-up in 1976 behind Lazio.[1] After having played a handful of Coppa Italia matches with the first team, he was loaned to Reggiana and then sold to Serie B club Palermo in 1978. He stayed five seasons at Palermo, all in Serie B, but reached a Coppa Italia final in 1979, then lost to Juventus.

After two seasons with Cavese (Serie B) and Pistoiese (Serie C1), Gasperini moved to Pescara, where he finally gained his first opportunity to play in Serie A after the promotion in 1987. He made his Serie A debut in a home match against Pisa, ended in a 2-1 victory which featured a goal of his. In 1990 he left Pescara to join Salernitana, and retired in 1993 at the age of 35 after two seasons with Vis Pesaro.

Coaching

In 1994 Gasperini joined once again Juventus's youth system, this time with coaching duties. He was initially coach of the Giovanissimi for two years, followed by two other years with the Allievi. In 1998 he became head coach of the Primavera squad.

In 2003 he left Juventus to become head coach of Serie C1 club Crotone, where he readily guided his team to promotion in Serie B after playoffs. He stayed at Crotone for two more season in Serie B; he was sacked during the 2004-2005 season but appointed back soon later. From 2006 he is head coach of ambitious club Genoa, and led his side to a promotion to Serie A in his first season with the rossoblu

In the 2008–2009 season, Gasperini led Genoa to fifth place of Serie A, the highest placement for the team in 19 years, thus securing a UEFA Europa League spot, relaunching players like Diego Milito and Thiago Motta in a 3–4–3 formation and a particularly spectacular football style that was praised throughout Italy.[2]
