Benito Carbone

Where is Benito Carbone now?

After a career spanning 17 different clubs within Italy and the Premier League in England, Benito Carbone hung up his boots whilst playing for Pavia in his home country Italy in 2009.



After retiring from playing, Carbone stayed on at Pavia as youth coach before a promotion to head coach in March 2011.

He did very well in this role and guided the club out of the relegation places ensuring that they stayed in their league.

In June 2011, Carbone accepted the head coach role at Serie B club Varese but unfortunately only lasted four months before he was sacked.

He then went onto have a short spell as manager of Italian Second Division club Vallee d’Aoste but was sacked after only five months after some poor team performances.

In May 2014, Benito Carbone joined Leeds United as a ‘special consultant’ to the board of directors for sport matters including facilities and academy’ but left two months later after a reported fall out with owner Massimo Cellino.

In 2015, Carbone returned to former side Inter Milan to shadow coach Roberto Maldini in order to gain some top flight coaching experience.

Later that year he also had a temporary spell coaching Italian Serie D team Pro Sesto Calcio helping them to avoid relegation.

In August 2016, Benito Carbone was back in management with Italian Serie B side Ternana as a replacement for ex Chelsea player Christian Panucci.

Unfortunately, Carbone’s time at Ternana was short-lived and he resigned from his post in January 2017 after a string of poor results left the side in second bottom postition.
