He spent 1999–2000 Serie C1 season in Como along with Alberto Comazzi and Luca Saudati of Milan. Half of the registration rights also sold to Salernitana in 2000–01 and 2001–02 season.
In June 2002 Milan bought back De Zerbi from Salernitana and sold De Zerbi to U.S. Foggia.
New Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi has admitted it is unlikely he will change too much for his first match in charge away to Liverpool on Saturday.
The Italian was hired as Graham Potter’s replacement earlier this month but has spent little time with his squad due to a number of players being away on international duty.
Potter had guided the Seagulls to fourth place in the Premier League before he left to take over at Chelsea and while his successor is eager to implement his own philosophy, he knows patience is key.
“I believe I can do a good job,” De Zerbi told reporters.
“I didn’t work too much with the team because today would be the first day I can have training with everybody but I don’t want to change too much.
“For me it is difficult because I would like to put my idea but it is not right to change so much in the first moment.
“The team already did very good. The head coach has been changed but I cannot do and I don’t want to do the same that Potter was doing.
Jurgen Klopp will be the first manager that De Zerbi takes on in the Premier League in what is a maiden meeting between the pair.
On 6 September 2016, De Zerbi was named head coach of Serie A club Palermo following Davide Ballardini’s departure by mutual consent due to disagreements with the board.
His stint at the helm of the Sicilians however turned out to be negative, with seven consecutive defeats and no points at home in three months.

On 23 October 2017, De Zerbi was appointed manager of 2017–18 Serie A newcomers Benevento.
Despite the side being relegated back to Serie B at the end of the season, De Zerbi was praised for his possession-based, attacking football and transfer business.
On 13 June 2018, De Zerbi was appointed manager of Sassuolo. Under his tenure, Sassuolo was praised for its footballing style coupled with overachieving results, which led the small Emilian club to two consecutive eighth place spots in the Italian top flight, missing on UEFA Conference League qualification to Roma just due to goal difference at the end of the 2020–21 Serie A season.
Then On 25 May 2021, De Zerbi was announced as the new head coach of Ukrainian Premier League club Shakhtar Donetsk.
De Zerbi was confirmed as the new head coach of Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion on 18 September 2022, signing a four-year contract.

A couple of others which have not been quite as notable in the Italian boss’s repertoire, so far at least, are protection of the defence and picking up major trophies, but there’s good reason to suspect both could follow in time as he now resumes a career which had been on a decidedly upward trajectory.
