Andrea Sottil (born 4 January 1974) is an Italian football coach and former footballer, who played as a defender, currently in charge of Udinese.

Player career

Sottil started his career with Torino and made his Serie A debut on 6 December 1992, in a 1–1 draw to Foggia. In 1994, he left Torino to join Fiorentina, then moving to Atalanta later in 1996. In 1999, he moved to Udinese, where he also had the opportunity to play at continental level in the UEFA Cup.

Sottil was signed by Reggina in co-ownership deal in summer 2003, along with teammate Gonzalo Martínez. In summer 2005, he was signed by Catania, which he was the regular starter in the first two-season, but only played 7 games in 2007–08 Serie A.

In August 2008, he was signed by Rimini.[1] In July 2009 he left for Alessandria.[2][3] He retired at the end of the 2010–11 season, having managed over 200 games in Serie A throughout his career.

Coach

Soon after retirement, Sottil passed the category 2 (UEFA A) coaching exam in June 2011.[4] Later in the summer he was appointed new head coach of Lega Pro Prima Divisione club U.S. Siracusa, with the goal of leading the ambitious Sicilians into the battle to promotion in the Serie B league.[5]

In 2012, he was the coach of Gubbio in Lega Pro Prima Divisione. In 2013, he is the coach of A.C. Cuneo in Lega Pro Seconda Divisione.[6] He was fired on 7 January 2014.[7] Ezio Rossi replaced Sottil on the next day.[8]

In 2015 Sottil returned to Siracusa for A.S.D. Città di Siracusa. The club was promoted to Lega Pro as Siracusa Calcio. He left the club in the summer 2017.[9]

He was re-hired by Livorno on 8 April 2018 after getting fired earlier in the same season.[10]

On 5 July 2018, he was appointed new coach of Catania. He was fired from Catania on 2 July 2019.[11]

On 7 July 2020, he took his first Serie B managerial role, being named Nicola Legrottaglie's successor at the helm of Pescara in a last-ditch attempt to save the club from relegation. He guided Pescara to safety after defeating Perugia on penalties in a two-legged playoff, but was not confirmed for the next season.

On 23 December 2020, he took over as the new head coach of relegation-threatened Serie B side Ascoli, becoming the third manager of the season for the Bianconeri.[12] After guiding Ascoli for two seasons, and reaching the promotion playoffs in his final one in charge of the club, on 6 June 2022 Sottil left the Picchio by mutual consent.[13] The following day, he was announced as the new head coach of Serie A club Udinese.[14]

Personal life

His son Riccardo Sottil made his Serie A debut for Fiorentina in the 2018–19 season.[15]
