Just one year ago, Patrick Ciurria was playing for a very small club – Castellarano, playing in one of the lowest Italian divisions. Spezia Calcio took him from there; initially on loan, but after great performances in Campionato Primavera and Viareggio Cup 2013, “The Aquilotti” managers decided to take him they made the transfer permanent. He made his first team debut on the 10th of August 2013 in a Coppa Italia match against Pro Patria. Just two weeks later he made his first league debut in Serie B – playing 25 minutes against Cittadella. Patrick can play practically everywhere in attack, but feels best on the wing or as a second striker. He is a regular U-19 international and has the trust of Alessandro Pane – coach of Italy U-19 team.
“My strengths are for sure : shooting, vision and dribbling. I have to work a lot on the right foot.”
