Coach license UEFA Pro. International soccer star and father.
Andrea Icardi first started playing at ten years old with A.C Milan and went on to spend 13 years with this club, now the most titled in the world.
As a young boy he was selected for the National team for seven years before becoming part of the First Squad. His first game in the magic San Siro (Meazza) stadium was when he was still only 17years old.
During his time with A.C.Milan he marked the world's best such as Maradona, Zico and Platini while playing alongside other famous names such as Paolo Maldini and Franco Baresi.
Andrea's second dream was to come to Australia and so he came to Marconi club in the nineties to both play and coach for them. Coaching became his passion leading him to complete all the necessary levels until reaching the coveted UEFA Licence PRO, allowing him to teach all ages, divisions and levels.
