バイオグラフィ

The signing of Davide Zappacosta from Torino was completed on transfer deadline day, August 2017.

The Italian international, who can play at wing-back or full-back, signed a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

Zappacosta possesses a combination of defensive and attacking qualities and is a fine crosser of the ball from a wide-right position. His energy and stamina enable him to get forward for 90 minutes and recover quickly when defending. He is quick and composed in one-on-one situations and times his tackles well.

He began his career at Italian fourth-tier side Isola Liri. After signing for Atalanta in Serie A, he then enjoyed regular first team football with Avellino, who purchased co-ownership rights to the player. He returned to Atalanta and became a regular there in 2014/15, with his performances earning him a move to Torino, one of the historically most successful clubs in Italy.

An impressive season in Turin led to Antonio Conte calling up Zappacosta to the Italy national squad ahead of Euro 2016, and he was named on their back-up list for the tournament. He subsequently made his maiden international appearance during the 2016/17 season and had been capped four times by the Azzurri at the time of his Chelsea signing.

He quickly made an impact at Stamford Bridge. Having made his debut as a substitute in a win at Leicester in early September 2017, he scored a spectacular goal at home a few days later on his first start, finding the Qarabag net in the Champions League from out wide after a storming run down the wing.

ダヴィデ・ザッパコスタは2017年8月の移籍市場最終日、トリノからチェルシーに加入した。

 25歳のザッパコスタはウィングバック、サイドバックでプレー可能。イタリア代表経験もある。チェルシーとは4年契約にサインした。 

ザッパコスタは攻守にわたって高い能力を兼ね備え、右ウィングからの正確なクロスも魅力のひとつ。90分走る続ける強靭なスタミナもある。また対人の強さ、タックルも武器だ。 

イタリア4部のイーゾラ・リーリでキャリアをスタート。その後セリエAのアタランタへ移籍すると、選手の共同保有権を持つアッヴェリーノではレギュラーに定着。2014/15シーズンにはアタランタに復帰し中心選手として活躍。イタリアの古豪、鳥のへと活躍の場を移した。 

トリノでの活躍が当時イタリア代表を指揮していたアントニオ・コンテの目に止まり、ユーロ2016ではバックアップとしてメンバー入りを果たした。2016/17シーズンには代表でも出場機会を獲得し、チェルシー加入時点では4試合に出場している。 

スタンフォードブリッジでもすぐにインパクトを残したザッパコスタ。デビュー戦となったチャンピオンズリーグ、カラバフ戦では右サイドから強烈なシュートを叩き込み、チェルシー初ゴールを挙げている。

Zappacosta continued to feature regularly as the season developed and filled in at left wing-back when Marcos Alonso was unavailable. He scored his first league goal for the Blues in a big win against Stoke City in our final game of 2017. He finished his first season in west London having made 35 appearances. 

2018/19

Zappacosta's involvement during the 2018/19 campaign was limited to the domestic cup competitions and Europa League, although the Italian has impressed when called upon due to his ability to get forward at pace and deliver dangerous balls from wide areas.

In the Carabao Cup win over Derby County, two of our three goals came from Zappacosta crosses, and it  was another of his deliveries which led to Ruben Loftus-Cheek being brought down for a penalty during the FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

Used largely off the bench in the second half of the season, Zappacosta came on in the second leg of our Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt, adding some much-needed energy to proceedings, and again in the final when the scoring was complete. 

2019/20

On 21 August 2019, Zappacosta signed a one-year extension to his Chelsea deal and moved to Roma on loan in Serie A. However, having made only two appearances for the Italian club due to injury problems, he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his knee during training at the start of October 2019. After recovering from the lengthy injury, Zappacosta made a further six appearances in the Italian top tier before the end of the season.

2020/21

It was announced in September 2020 that Zappacosta would return to Italy for another Serie A loan, this time to Genoa. There he played 25 games and scored four times.

今季も定期的に出場機会を掴み、着実に成長を遂げているザッパコスタ。マルコス・アロンソが欠場の場合は左ウィングバックを務めている。2017年の最終節、ストーク戦ではチェルシー移籍後、リーグ戦初ゴールを挙げた。デビューシーズンを35試合出場で終えている。

2018/19

2018/19シーズンは国内カップ戦とヨーロッパリーグに出場機会は限られたが、積極的な駆け上がりが大きな武器となった。

ダービー相手のカラバオ杯では、ザッパコスタのクロスから2ゴールが生まれている。またFA杯ノッティンガム・フォレスト戦ではクロスからルベン・ロフタス=チークのPK獲得を演出した。
