Who was Patrizio Billio?

Patrizio Billio was an Italian footballer who played as a midfielder.

On April 19, 1974, Billio was born in Treviso, Italy. He graduated from the Catholic University of Milan with a degree in sports management.


At A.C. Milan, Billio began his professional career by playing for the junior academy before being moved up to the main team. Later, he played for Ancona, Ternana, Casarano, Verona, and Verona (all of which were in Serie B).

He joined Crystal Palace in the Premier League in January 1998 and made his league debut in a victory over Newcastle United at St. James’ Park as a substitute. After a brief stint playing for Newcastle, Billio then signed for Dundee in October 1999.

Excellent results led to a three-season extension for the team. However, not long after, he and another Italian player Marco De Marchi experienced severe disagreements with the new leadership, particularly with manager Ivano Bonetti. They were unjustly kicked off the first squad, and after a few months they had to practice by themselves or with the younger team.

Billio claimed that his car was stolen from his residence in January 2002 and that he was headbutted by a man with a skinhead hairstyle in front of Dens Park. Although Paul Marr, a Dundee executive, was ultimately cleared in court, there were rumours that he had been engaged in the attack. Fifa made the decision to terminate his contract shortly after, and Aberdeen signed him on a free transfer in August 2002.

He made his club debut with a goal in a 3-1 victory over Dunfermline. He decided to leave Aberdeen in December 2002 and signed with Serie B team Livorno. He later participated in matches for Sora (Serie C1, 2003–2004, 2004–2005), Pro Sesto (January 2005–2006, Serie C1 &C2), and Massese (Serie C1). After going back to Tuscany in January 2009 to join Lega Pro Seconda Divisione team Colligiana, where he eventually ended his career, he then went back to Pro Sesto in 2008 Serie C1.
