Dario Del Fabro has had a real up and down career.
Dario Del Fabro’s career has verged between the sublime and ridiculous so far.
His spell at Leeds United was sadly towards the latter.
Del Fabro signed for Leeds in 2014, being loaned in from Cagliari during Massimo Cellino’s turbulent ownership.
He made only one appearance for Leeds, in a FA Cup defeat, before becoming embroiled in the sorry ‘sicknote six’ saga where a group of players reportedly pledged not to play for the club at the end of the season [via YEP].
Del Fabro was sent packing when his loan expired, only for him to resurface a couple of years later when he landed a big move to Juventus.
What were Leeds missing?
Well, Del Fabro has got nowhere near to Juventus’ first team and last season he had a poor loan spell, almost as bad as his Leeds one, at Cremonese, where he made only three appearances.
Now he has returned to the UK, signing a deal on loan with Scottish side Kilmarnock.
He joins Italian boss Angelo Alessio, for now, if he can keep his job.
Kilmarnock were dumped out of the Europa League by Welsh part timers, and sit bottom of the Scottish Premiership after three games.
Del Fabro is an optimistic throw of the dice to try and turn it around. Who knows, it may just work.
