Pierluigi Gollini

Player #893 for Aston Villa, Pierluigi Gollini played as a goalkeeper for the club in 2016-17 making 20 appearances. Gollini was the 95th custodian of the Villa goal in professional football.

Pierluigi was born in Bologna on 18 March 1995.

Roberto Di Matteo had signed Pierluigi from Hellas Verona for £4,500,000 on 8 July 2016.

Gollini made his debut appearance for Villa on Sunday, 7 August 2016 aged 21 in the opening day Championship defeat at Sheffield Wednesday and would go on to keep goal for Villa over 20 consecutive Championship games including 10 under Di Matteo’s successor Steve Bruce.

Across his 20 appearances Gollini conceded just 17 goals at an excellent ratio of 0.85 goals per game whilst keeping 5 clean sheets but he would make his final appearance for Villa on Tuesday, 13 December 2016 in the 0-1 Championship defeat at Norwich City.

Given his figures and consistent selection in the first team it was a surprise for Gollini to lose the favour of new boss Steve Bruce so quickly however he was shipped out on loan to Atalanta B.C. from13 January 2017 to 30 June 2018 ahead of a permanent move in July 2018 in return for a fee of £3,870,000.

Bruce favoured veteran Mark Bunn with Gollini relegated to the bench before the arrival of Sam Johnstone on loan from Manchester United, who like Gollini, posted goal concession statistics that Villa hadn’t seen for decades.

Pierluigi played under Roberto Di Matteo and Steve Bruce.
