Italian star Andrea Dossena spent almost two years at Premier League side Liverpool before he signed for Napoli in his native Italy. Andrea Dossena was at Liverpool for 18 months before Italian Serie A outfit Napoli snapped him up during the 2010 winter transfer window.
Andrea Dossena officially signed for Napoli on January 8, 2010. The Italian put pen to paper on a four-year deal and he was given the number eight shirt. Napoli paid around €4.25m to secure his transfer from the Reds.
Dossena made his Napoli debut five days after joining the club. His first game for Napoli was against Juventus in the Coppa Italia. Four days after the Juventus game, Andrea Dossena made his Italian Serie A debut during the goalless draw with Palermo. Dossena and Napoli were unable to break the resolve of Palermo at home with the game ending without any goal.
In his final game of the 2010/11 season, Dossena scored twice at the expense of Siena. The two goals from Dossena gave Napoli a 2-1 win over Siena. His goals on the final day of the season ensured that Napoli would play Europa League football. Andrea Dossena spent three years at Napoli before he left the club to join Palermo on loan.
Dossena was asked to look for a new club when his former Liverpool manager, Rafael Benitez, was appointed into the managerial role at Napoli in the summer of 2013. As a result, he left Napoli to join English side Sunderland on a free agent. His Sunderland debut came during the 2-1 victory over Northeast rivals Newcastle United. In his second game as a Sunderland player, Dossena was sent off against Hull City for a stamp on David Meyler. He spent just one season at Sunderland before he left the club. Dossena had lost his first choice left-back spot to a young Marcos Alonso by the time he left Sunderland.
