942 Vito Mannone

Biography

Young Italian goalkeeper Mannone joined Hull City in October 2010 for a two month loan spell.  This spell was cut short by a thigh injury but he was soon back at the KC Stadium for the remainder of the season, resuming his first team duties in March 2011.  Although young and occasionally shaky under the high ball, Vito was clearly a talented shot stopper with decent distribution with the ball at his feet.  Mannone returned to City for the second half of the 2012/13 season, where he enhanced his reputation further with some fine displays for Nick Barmby’s side.

Hailing from Desio on the outskirts of Milan, Mannone switched from Atalanta to Arsenal at the age of 17, made his League debut on loan at Barnsley at 18 and debuted for the Gunners at 21.  Following his two loan spells at Hull City, Mannone made further first team appearances for Arsenal as he understudied for Wjociech Szczesny.  In 2013 he switched to Sunderland where he spent four seasons in and out of the perenially struggling first team, playing or resting at the behest of the Black Cats’ numerous managers over that period.  In July 2017 he moved to Reading where he established himself as permanent first choice for an extended spell.

Mannone has received international caps for the Italy under-21 side.
