Vito Mannone Career

Early career

Mannone, a Sicilian boy, was signed by Arsène Wenger in 2005, joining Arsenal from Atalanta on a three-year contract for a £350,000 compensation fee. On July 16, 2005, he made his Arsenal debut in a pre-season friendly against Barnet, beating Barnet 4–1.

Club career

Mannone was released on a three-month loan to Barnsley, where he was supposed to face Nick Colgan for the number one spot on August 18th. On August 22, 2006, he made his League Cup debut against Blackpool. Following a 2–2 draw, Mannone's team lost the game by a penalty shotout in which Mannone saved a penalty from Keigan Parker to help his team advance to the next round. However, Mannone's time at Barnsley was not exactly a pleasant one. After Colgan was suspended after making his league debut in a home game to Preston North End on September 22, he came on as a substitute. Patrick Agyemang's head punched a cross onto Patrick Agyemang's head, and the ball bounced in for the winning goal to Preston. Ahmet Brkovi scored the winner in his next match, starting in place of the suspended Colgan.

Mannone's loan period was cut short after suffering a knee injury, and he returned to Arsenal on October 23rd, 2006 for recovery.

In the summer of 2007, he was linked to a loan transfer to Gretna, the newly promoted Scottish Premier League team.

During Arsenal's 2007–08 League Cup campaign, Mannone was understudy to ukasz Fabiaski. However, he was an inactive replacement in all of the club's five games before being disqualified by Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals. Mannone had signed a new long-term deal, according to Arsenal on December 19, 2007. In Arsenal's 2–0 victory over Reading at the Emirates Stadium on April 19, he was named on the bench for the first time in a Premier League game. However, Jens Lehmann was an ineffective substitute as he started the game.

Mannone was Arsenal's third-choice goalkeeper after Jens Lehmann's departure in the summer of 2008, behind Manuel Almunia and ukasz Fabiaski. Mannone's shirt number went from 40 to 24 at the start of the 2008–09 season, after Manuel Almunia (the previous owner) was given the number 1. He was brought on for Arsenal's 2–1 pre-season friendly victory over Barnet at Underhill on July 19, 2008, keeping the clean sheet. He made a total of four pre-season appearances for Arsenal's first team in the summer of 2008, starting as a half-time replacement in all of them.

In Arsenal's last game of the 2008–09 season, a Premier League fixture against Stoke City on May 24, he made his competitive debut for the first team. Arsenal beat the game 4–1.

Mannone made his first UEFA Champions League debut against Standard Liège on September 16, 2009, with first choice goalkeeper Manuel Almunia and back-up 'ukasz Fabiaski out injured. Mannone's night got off to a rocky start, losing twice inside the first five minutes to Mannone, who was thrown out of the box, and Milan Jovanovi after being brought down by William Gallas. Arsenal beat the match 3–2 on aggregate, despite goals from Nicklas Bendtner, Thomas Vermaelen, and Eduardo.

Mannone appeared in his second Premier League match against Wigan Athletic on September 19, 2009. In a 4–0 win over Arsenal, he kept a clean sheet. Mannone was also kept clean in a 1–0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage on September 26, 2009, when he made some good saves and practically kept Arsenal alive. Mannone said the game was the highlight of his career. In the 2–0 victory over Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League on September 29, he kept a clean sheet. Mannone was chosen as the starting keeper over Almunia, who had been out of action due to sickness; this was seen as a vote of trust for Mannone after people had doubted him and Almunia's future in the first team.

Mannone agreed to a new long-term deal with Arsenal on January 25, 2010, marking his aspirations to become Arsenal's first choice goalkeeper.

Mannone joined Hull City on loan until January 3, 2011. Mannone played his first game with Hull City against Scunthorpe United in a reserve match in which Hull defeated Hull 3–0. Mannone was reported to have made few big saves. In a 2–0 victory over Preston North End, he made his first team debut on November 13, 2010 against Preston North End, where he kept a clean sheet. On his home debut in which the game ended in a 1–0 victory for Hull, he kept another clean sheet against Ipswich Town. He had a good time with Hull, retaining 4 clean sheets in 7 games and saving a penalty against Reading. He returned to Arsenal after suffering a thigh injury in December 2010, but Hull was on loan until the end of the season. In a 1–0 victory over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on March 5, he recovered from injury.

Mannone returned to Arsenal as the third choice behind the Polish keepers Wojciech Szczny and ukasz Fabiaski. Lukasz Fabiaski, who was injured in the 2011-12 season, made his first competitive appearance of the 2011-12 season against Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League on December 6, 2011. Mannone made a mistake that allowed David Fuster to score Olympiakos' second goal of the night, but Arsenal lost the game 3–1.

Mannone returned to Hull City on January 4th, 2012, signing on loan until the end of the season. Hull City defeated Ipswich Town 3–1. This was his first game at the KC Stadium since being a member of the FA Cup Third Round. Reading won by 1–0 away from losing his first league game. He then appeared in the FA Cup Fourth Round match against Crawley, which resulted in Hull's surprise 0–1 loss and was named Man of the Match. In a goalless draw at the KC Stadium on 31 January, he kept a clean sheet over Doncaster.

Mannone was the first choice goalkeeper in a 0–0 draw against Stoke City and kept another clean sheet against Liverpool a week later. Due to injuries to both Wojciech Szczny and ukasz Fabiaski, he was the first choice goalkeeper, playing the full 90 minutes against Stoke City. On September 23, Mannone played in a 1–1 draw against Manchester City. Mannone said he was able to challenge Szczny for the top spot this season thanks to his appearances this season. He took over Fabia's number one spot from Fabiaski for the number one spot.

Fabiaski filled in in in March as Szczczczczczny rested for a few games and Mannone injured. Fabiaski's appearances led him to his reserve, putting Mannone down to third place.

Mannone signed a two-year deal with Sunderland for an undisclosed fee on July 3rd. Mannone appeared in both of Sunderland's games in the Premier League Asia Trophy, but Keiren Westwood was preferred to him for the first league game of the season against Fulham. Mannone made his League debut with the Black Cats in a 1–0 loss at Hull, replacing the injured Westwood. Mannone won the 2–1 cup over Southampton and got his first league off to a 1–0 win over Manchester City.

Mannone saved two penalties in the second leg of the League Cup's second leg against Manchester United, helping Sunderland qualify for the final against Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.

Mannone was named the Sunderland Supporter of the Year at a special presentation night at the Stadium of Light on April 22, 2014. He was named the club's official Player of the Year on May 29, 2014, on May 29.

Mannone was the first pick in the 2014-15 season, but after a string of poor results that culminated in an 8–0 loss at Southampton and a 2–0 home loss at Arsenal the next week, he was dropped in favour of Costel Pantilimon. Pantilimon was still the first pick for the remainder of the season, with Mannone only appearing in cup games and in a 3–1 loss at Chelsea on the final day.

Mannone took the lead against Pantilimon in a 4–1 loss at Manchester City on December 26, 2015. After the game, he remained his place in the following match, a 0–1 home loss to Liverpool, and was lauded by boss Sam Allardyce. Since Pantilimon was moved to Watford in January 2016, Mannone remained the first choice over Jordan Pickford for the remainder of the season, with Sunderland's victory over Everton on May 16 proving their victory over Everton.

As the keeper prepares to leave after 12 years, David de Gea's best and worst times at Man United were compiled, July 1, 2023
David de Gea, who played for 545 times in his career, is expected to leave Manchester United after his deal comes to an end. De Gea had intended to sign a contract extension, but United backed out of the negotiated deal before reportedly giving him a lower salary. United certainly has a chance to re-sign the 32-year-old as a free agent, but for the time being, his club's long association with the club is likely to come to an end.
