Rodrigo Ferrante Taddei (born 6 March 1980) is an Italo-Brazilian footballer, who currently plays for Roma. He plays as a right midfielder or attacking midfielder notable for his dribbling and versatility.


Club career

He started his career in Brazil with Palmeiras, then moved to Italy in September 2002 and signing for Siena, a then Serie B team, which later earned promotion to Serie A.

In late 2003, Taddei was seriously injured in a car accident. His younger brother, Leonardo, died in the accident and his team mate Pinga was also hurt.[1] Upon recovery, Taddei returned to play for Siena.

After another season with Siena, Taddei left on a Bosman free transfer and signed a five-year contract with Roma in 2005.

Joining Roma offered Taddei the chance to perform on the European stage. He scored the opening goal in Roma's 2–1 victory over Manchester United in the first leg of the 2007 Champions League quarter finals, but was injured in the warm up of the second leg, and was ruled out of the match.

Taddei received some attention after he performed a move he later titled "The Aurelio", after AS Roma assistant manager Aurelio Andreazzoli, in a Champions League group stage match against Olympiacos on 18 October 2006.[2]

International career

Taddei, who also owns Italian citizenship, has never been capped by the Brazilian national team. This could allow him to play for Italy. In February 2009, he has stated publicly that he would accept a call from Marcello Lippi.[3]
