Amedeo Carboni

Amedeo Carboni (born 6 April, 1965 in Arezzo) is a former Italian professional footballer. He was a former player and former sporting director of Spanish football club Valencia Club de Fútbol, where he played for nine years between 1997 and 2006. A left back, he has represented the Italian national football team eighteen times.

Career

Carboni has played for numerous Italian clubs before joining Valencia, including Arezzo, AS Bari, Parma, Sampdoria and AS Roma.

On 23 October 2005, he became the oldest player at the age of 40 years, six months and 17 days to play in the La Liga, a record previously held by Deportivo de La Coruña's Donato. He also achieved the feat of the oldest winner of any European club competition, when he won the UEFA Cup in 2004.

On May 19, 2006, Carboni became Valencia's sporting director (a role found in most Spanish clubs, involving the responsibility of signing new players).

On June 19, 2007, Carboni was sacked from Valencia. The working relationship between Carboni and the then Valencia-coach Quique Sánchez Flores was strained after many disputes, and left a situation in which one would stay, and the other would leave the club. The club announced on that day that it had chosen Sanchez Flores over Carboni. Not long after that, Quique Sanchez was sacked himself.
