Biography

Emanuele Belardi began his football career in the Reggina academy, before gaining promotion to the first team (playing under current FC Pune City manager Franco Colomba). He went on to make over 100 appearances for the southern Italian side, although he also went out on four separate loan spells, including one with Napoli. Juventus signed him in 2006 after their relegation to Serie B, to serve as a backup to Gianluigi Buffon. Following their return to Serie A after just one season, he made five league appearances for the Italian giants before moving on to Udinese.
