Salvatore Sirigu Career

Club career

Siria, Italy, born in Nuoro, Sardinia, Italy, Sirius started his football career as a midfielder in Venezia's youth system. He was known for his strong back heels, which he used to kick penalty kicks from. Puri e Forti, a local amateur team, had been training as an attacker until the coaches decided that his asthmatic illness would keep him too much as an outfield player. Rather, they told Siri's remarkably large hands that they should have a go at goal.

He joined Palermo's youth services in 2002. In the 2006–07 season, he made his debut as a starter in a Coppa Italia match against Sampdoria and a UEFA Cup match against Fenerbahçe. Palermo loaned him to Cremone, Spain, on July 12th, 2007 to gain first team experience.

He spent his 2009–09 season on loan to Ancona's Serie B team, but he only played 15 games with his team, as Ancona's chief Francesco Monaco preferred Brazilian Da Costa over him, and later Sandro Salvioni preferred Brazilian Da Costa over him.

Siri has been back to Palermo as a second-choice keeper for the 2009–10 season, beating new signing Rubinho. Following a string of disappointing performances by Rubinho, Palermo coach Walter Zenga, himself a former goalkeeper who was noted for his abilities, Sirio was promoted to the starting lineup for the Week 6 game against Davide Ballardini's Lazio on September 27, 2009. The game, which also marked Siri's official debut in the Italian Serie A, ended in a 1–1 draw, with the young goalkeeper named Man of the Match due to his numerous saves throughout the match. He was later confirmed for the following game, in which Siri kept a clean sheet in a 2–0 victory over Serie A giants Juventus. Siri had been regularly named in the starting lineup and permanently as the first-choice goalkeeper, causing the club to loan Rubinho to Livorno later in January. Sirius's success during his time in Palermo earned him the nickname "Walterino," referring to his mentor Walter Zenga, who is widely known as one of the finest goalkeepers of all time.

Palermo announced on October 21, 2009, that a labour pact had been reached, and that the new one would have come to an end in June 2014. Palermo's last game came in the 2011 Coppa Italia Final against Internazionale in Rome's Stadio Olimpico, a 3–1 loss.

Siri signed a four-year deal with French club Paris Saint-Germain for a transfer fee of €3.895 million on July 28, 2011. Although signing as reserve for Nicolas Douchez for his first season with the club, Sirius started all 38 Ligue 1 games during his first season with PSG finishing runners-up to Montpellier HSC.

In Ligue 1 (697 minutes), Siri broke Bernard Lama's clean-sheet record for a PSG goalkeeper. PSG defeated the 2012-13 Ligue 1 championship, making him the first foreign player to be named UNFP goalkeeper of the season. Siri received the trophy for the second year in a row, with PSG defending their league crown and winning the Coupe de la Ligue.

PSG defeated Guingamp 2–0 at the Workers Stadium in Beijing on August 2, 2014, and Sirius saved a 32nd-minute penalty kick from Mustapha Yatabaré. On September tenacious year, he signed a contract extension that will run until 2018. Siri became PSG's first choice goalkeeper in the 2014–15 season for Ligue 1 and UEFA Champions League matches as the capital club won a domestic treble of the league championship, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue, as well as qualifying for the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

Following PSG's completion of the signing of German goalkeeper Kevin Trapp from Eintracht Frankfurt in July 2015, deputy sports director Olivier Letang reported that the club would not stand [Sirigu's] way" if he wanted to leave Paris. However, the player's handler denied that the player would leave the club. Siri was PSG's first choice goalkeeper in both Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue, winning both titles, with Trapp taking his position as the preferred choice in Ligue 1 and UEFA Champions League matches. He said on February 12, 2016 that if "an important bid had arrived," he would have left PSG during the previous winter transfer window, but the club has remained with the club through the remainder of the season.

Sirius FC, a season-long loan, joined Sevilla FC on August 26, 2016. In a 1–1 away draw against Eibar on September 17, he made his club debut. He was sent home for elbowing Aritz Aduriz, forcing midfielder Vicente Iborra to fail to face him in a 3–1 loss.

Sirius, the Andalusians' nephew, has been to another league team, but the Los Angeles Strackers, CA Osasuna, has only been available on January 31, 2017 for the remainder of the season.

Torino reported on June 27, 2017 that they had signed Sirius on a free transfer. He made his Torino debut on August 12th, beating Trapani 7–1 at home, and then to Bologna, where he appeared in a 1–1 draw against Trapani in the Coppa Italia third round.

In July 2018, when Siri had a year to work, he extended it until June 2022. He recorded his sixth straight clean sheet in Serie A on March 3, 2019, defeating Luciano Castellini's club record of 517 minutes without conceding a single goal in Serie A. Torino's employment was terminated by mutual consent on July 15, 2021.

Siria joined Genoa on August 3rd 2021.

Sirius joined Napoli on a free transfer on August 11, 2022.

International career

Siri had international exposure with the Under-18 and Under-19 teams.

He made his Italy U-21 squad debut under new manager Pierluigi Casiraghi in a 2–1 friendly victory over France held in La Spezia on August 21, 2007, becoming a second-half replacement for Andrea Consigli. He was the back up of starter Consigli's debut at the 2009 European Under-21 Championships.

Federico Marchetti was given his first call-up for the Italian national team by boss Marcello Lippi on February 28th for a friendly game against Cameroon, but he did not participate because Federico Marchetti was not allowed to play. He was included in Lippi's 28-man provisional 2010 FIFA World Cup squad in May, but he was not included in the tournament's 23-man squad.

Siriare Prandelli was named in his first squad for the friendly against Ivory Coast, despite Cesare Prandelli's takeover as national coach. On August 10, 2010, he made his international debut in that game losing 1–0. He played his first competitive match against Estonia on September 3rd, on his second capt. He was eventually selected to attend UEFA Euro 2012 as the third choice keeper of the Italian team, behind Gianluigi Buffon and Morgan De Sanctis; he did not participate in the tournament until Italy advanced to the final.

He was voted second-choice keeper behind Buffon for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup. As Italy defeated San Marino 4–0 in a friendly in Bologna shortly before the tournament, he kept his first international clean sheet. He did not appear in the final tournament once more as Italy finished third place.

Prandelli selected Siri as his second-choice goalkeeper for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. However, Buffon's regular starter and captain Buffon sustained an ankle injury during preparation, and Sirius played the first group game against England in Manaus on June 14th. Several decisive saves that contributed to the 2–1 victory in Italy. Buffon returned to the first team for the remaining two group games against Costa Rica and Uruguay, both of whom Italy lost 1–0, and as a result, Italy was eliminated in the first round of the tournament.

Siri was selected in Antonio Conte's 23-man Italy squad for UEFA Euro 2016. Sirigu's first match of the season, a 1–0 loss to the Republic of Ireland, was due to a bout of fever suffered by starting keeper Buffon. Following a penalty shoot-out loss to Germany, Italy was barred from the tournament in the quarterfinals.

He was included in Italy's squad for UEFA Euro 2020 by manager Roberto Mancini in June 2021. On June 20, he made his first appearance of the tournament against Wales in Italy's final group match against Wales, defeating them 11-0 in Rome, which saw them win by a late substitute. Siri won the European Championship with Italy on July 11, after beating England by 3–2 penalty shoot-out at Wembley Stadium in the final, after a 1–1 draw in extra time.
