Club career

Early life and Piacenza

Resident from birth to Cossato, in the province of Biella, Gilardino started playing with Cossatese, with whom he remained until the Under-15 category of Juniors.[9]

After another year in the youth of A.S.D. Junior Biellese Libertas under the guidance of Luca Prina,[10] Gilardino went to Piacenza. The coach Luigi Simoni gave him his debut in Serie A at 17, on 6 January 2000 against Milan. The season ended with the Piacenza's relegation to Serie B, but Gilardino still managed to make an impact by scoring 3 goals in 17 matches.[11]


In September 2000, "Gila", as he is often nicknamed and already considered a talent, was sold to Verona in co-ownership,[12] for 7 billion Italian lire (€3,615,198).[13] Despite his young age, he scored five goals in his two seasons at the club where he made 39 league appearances. Gilardino attracted Verona to sign him in full in June 2001,[14][15] for 8.5 billion lire. (€4,389,884).[13]

Gilardino was bought by Parma in a co-ownership deal during the 2001–02 season for 9.5 billion lire (€4,906,341)[13] and loaned back to Verona. At Verona Gilardino played two seasons under the guidance of Attilio Perotti, and then Alberto Malesani.

He was also involved in a car accident which ruled him out of the season on 28 April 2001: a truck crossed his car off the road and ended up in the river Sile, but he managed to abandon it before it sank. However, a fracture of the sternum ruled him out of the rest of the season.[16] Gilardino, not yet 20 years old, scored 5 goals in 39 games in two seasons at Verona.


His career was launched on the international stage in 2002, as Parma bought the remained 50% registration rights and gave Šerić back to Verona.[17] That was strongly desired by the coach Cesare Prandelli, who advocates the purchase.[18] Later Adrian Mutu, his team-mate at Verona was also signed, to replace the exit of Marco Di Vaio. Under Cesare Prandelli, who later bought him to La viola, the attack holder of Parma is composed by Adrian Mutu and Adriano in the 2002–2003 Serie A season. Being a backup, Gilardino still managed to pick up 24 league appearances, scoring 4 goals. He also scored 1 goal in the Italian Cup. In the 2003–2004 season takes its affirmation explosive makes mark 23 goals in the league, as many as 17 of them in the second half of the season, during which the holder becomes stable, also thanks to the return of Adriano to Inter. That total in the 2003–04 campaign made him the second-most prolific Serie A scorer, preceded by a single goal from Andriy Shevchenko, However, Gila was the top scorer among Italian players. He also scored 3 goals in the UEFA Cup. The player credited his manager Cesare Prandelli for helping him to grow technically.[19] The success at club and U-21 level earned him a contract extension until June 2007.[20]

In his third championship in Parma (2004–2005), he repeated this feat, scoring another 23 goals in the league and finishing as the second-best scorer in Serie A once again, preceded (still only one goal) by Cristiano Lucarelli. He scored in a playoff match against Bologna, bringing his total haul to 24 goals.[21] He also scored once in the Coppa UEFA. He scored 51 goals for Parma in only 97 appearances in Serie A.


He made a €25 million transfer to A.C. Milan on 17 July 2005; He chose the number 11 shirt.[22][23] He made his first goal for Rossoneri in the match against Sampdoria. Gilardino concludes the 2005–2006 season with 17 goals in 34 Serie A appearances and 2 goals in 3 appearances in the Italian Cup, but he failed to find his offensive form in Milan's 2005–06 UEFA Champions League campaign, going goal-less in all 12 matches.[24]

In the 2006–2007 season, his first goal in UEFA Champions League finally came on 1 November 2006 in a 4–1 against Anderlecht. Gilardino's European offensive output the next season was equally disappointing, with only two goals. One of his two goals, though, helped Milan seal a decisive 3–0 win over Manchester United in the second leg of the semi-finals on 3 May 2007, which put them back into the Champions League final and set up a rematch with Liverpool. He played only two minutes as a substitute for Filippo Inzaghi in Milan's 2–1 victory. Gilardino led Milan in 2006–07 Serie A scoring with 12 goals; no other Milan player hit double figures. At the end of the season Gilardino revealed in an interview to feel challenged, to experience bitterness at not having played the Champions League final won by Milan, and was considering the possibility of leaving AC Milan.[25] Following a clarification with the management the player decided to stay.[26]

Gilardino contributed a brace in Milan's 5–1 defeat of Lazio on 7 October 2007 (which marked his first domestic goal following a double in Milan's 5–2 victory over Ascoli on 18 April), and likewise for his first Champions League brace netting of the season in a 4–1 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on 24 October. In the second half of the season, Gila is often left on the bench by coach Carlo Ancelotti, to be relegated to third striker behind Filippo Inzaghi and Alexandre Pato. Later, Gilardino described the last few months spent at Milan as the worst of his career,[27] while stressing the positive aspects of his experience in Milan and his estimate for the Rossoneri .[28]

With Milan, Gilardino was considered a strong front man who was adept at holding the ball and leading attacks.[29]

Playing style

Skilled in the air, both with his head and acrobatically,[90][91] Gilardino plays mainly as a striker who prefers to be served in the penalty area. This position allows him to leverage his skills, timing, and opportunism,[92] as well as his ability to protect the ball,[93] and to get on the end of his team mates' crosses.[94] He is also capable of providing depth to his team, and shooting first time,[95] as well as being capable of defending himself with his back to goal in order to lay off the ball for team mates and provide them with assists.[96][97][98] Gilardino is naturally right-footed, but in his early years at Parma, he was able to improve his ability with his left foot.[96][97][98]

Personal life

Gilardino is close friends with former Milan teammate Daniele Bonera; they were also teammates at Parma. Gilardino once dedicated one of his goals to Daniele's baby daughter Talitha. Besides his goal-scoring, he is well-remembered for his goal celebration as well – getting on his knees and "playing the violin" at the touchline in front of the fans. He became engaged to Alice Bregoli on 31 March 2006[99] and had their first baby, a girl Ginevra, on 2 March 2008. The couple wed 5 July 2009 in Santa Margherita Ligure, in the province of Genoa.[100] The second daughter, named Gemma, born on 19 March 2011.
