Early career

Matteo started his career at SPAL in 1995, and he can play as left-back or centreback. F.C. Internazionale Milano brought him to their youth system, later loaning him to Genoa C.F.C., U.S. Lecce and A.S. Bari.

He made his Serie A debut on 29 August 1999, AC Fiorentina 1-0 A.S. Bari.

He went back to Inter in summer 2000, making 27 appearances in all competition, but failed to stay, this time sold to Parma F.C. in co-ownership deal.

Parma

A permanent transfer was made because of his good performance.

Roma

In August 2004, he joined A.S. Roma for €7.25 million[1] (Part of the fee paid via Damiano Ferronetti going in the opposite direction.)[2] He failed to give the performances he had delivered in Parma, forcing the club to loan him to UEFA champions league competitor Everton F.C..

It took a few games for him to get accustomed to the Premiership, but Ferrari showed plenty of quality when he finally got going for Everton. Unfortunately that was brought to an end in the 1-0 win over Arsenal, when he sustained nerve damage to his hamstring.

He returned to the Everton side for the FA Cup 4th Round replay defeat against Chelsea.

Rumours suggested at one point Matteo Ferrari wanted to return to Roma, but in April 2006 David Moyes declared that all the signs pointed towards Matteo wanting to stay on and sign for Everton. However he came back to Roma at the beginning of the season 2006-07 and was third choice centre-half after Philippe Mexès and Cristian Chivu playing 36 matches, helping Roma to achieve second place in Serie A and winning the Coppa Italia.

Genoa

Matteo Ferrari signed for Genoa for the 2008-09 Serie A season on free transfer.

Beşiktaş

On July 7, 2009, Genoa confirmed on its official website that Ferrari transferred to Turkish club Beşiktaş J.K.. He signed a 4-year contract. He earns 2 million dolars per year. Ferrari had an injury in the match against Bursaspor and will absent for a month.

National team

Algerian born, with an Italian father and a Guinean mother, he chose to play on the Italy national football team. He had played for U15, U16 team, Italy U21 team.

Italy Olympic Team

Olympic medal record

Men's Football
Bronze 2004 Athens Team Competition

He played for his country twice at the Olympics, In 2000 and in 2004.

In 2000 Summer Olympics, he only played the quarterfinals match losing to Spain. In 2004 Summer Olympics, he is one of the three over age players allowed. He played all the matches and Italy lost the semi-finals match against Argentina (eventual champion of 2004 Olympics football), but Italy won the Bronze Medal match against Iraq.

Italy A

His first A team call-up is against Serbia and Montenegro (as FR Yugoslavia), but he did not play. In the same year, he made his A team debut against Turkey on 20 November 2002. Not a call-up to the 2002 FIFA World Cup, his first non-friendly appearance was the last Euro 2004 qualifying match against Azerbaijan, replacing Alessandro Nesta for the last 14 minutes.

His last cap was Italy friendly against Tunisia, on 30 May 2004.
