Vincenzo Sicignano is an Italian former football goalkeeper turned coach. Unlike other footballers from Naples which start their career at S.S.C. Napoli, he started his career at the Sicilian club Palermo. He left Palermo to join Parma in summer 2003. He made his debut for Parma replacing Sébastien Frey at half-time against Salzburg on 6 November 2003. He made his Serie A debut in the 0–0 draw against A.C. Milan three days later. He also started the return leg against Salzburg, which Parma won 5–0 at home. After his only Serie A appearance, and two more in the 2003–04 UEFA Cup, Sicignano joined Lecce on loan on 16 January 2004, which became a permanent deal. After retiring in 2012, Sicignano accepted to return at his former club Palermo as goalkeeping coach of the Under-19 Primavera youth team. He was successively promoted to first team goalkeeping coach in June 2015.
CHIEVO VERONA A.C.
Chievo vs Catania
Unwashed Match Worn Shirt
Did you Know?
This shirt was worn by Vincenzo Sicignano during the Serie A game between Chievo and Catania which took place in Verona, “Marcantonio Bentegodi” Stadium, on January 14th 2007. Chievo defeated Catania 2-1 and at the end of the game Sicignano swapped his shirt with a Catania’s player whom we got it from. The “Cattolica Assicurazioni” sponsor on chest was used by the team few times only. Indeed during the season the team was usual to frequently change the sponsor. After Lecce were relegated from Serie A, Sicignano joined ChievoVerona in the summer of 2006. He played 2 out of 2 qualifying matches in the 2006–07 UEFA Champions League, and 1 out of 2 in the 2006–07 UEFA Cup, but later in the season he lost his place in the starting lineup to Lorenzo Squizzi. He played the 2007-08 season with Frosinone, being transferred from Chievo in a loan (exchange with Massimo Zappino) deal. Sicignano left the team in the summer 2008 after he played 17 games in the two seasons.
