Felipe Mattioni Rohde (born 15 October 1988), known as Mattioni, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for RCD Espanyol in Spain as a right defender.

He also holds Italian citizenship.[1]

Football career


Born in Ijuí, Rio Grande do Sul, Mattioni joined Grêmio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense in 2004, being promoted to the main squad three years later but failing to appear in the Série A in his first season. However, after performing well in the U-20 Brazilian League, and appearing in the Rio Grande do Sul State League, he made his first-team debut, in a 2–0 home win against Clube Náutico Capibaribe.[2]

On 15 January 2009 A.C. Milan in Italy acquired Mattioni on loan, with the Rossoneri having and option to buy the player at the end of the season.[3][4] He played his first match in a 2–2 friendly draw with Rangers, but failed to make an impact due to leg injuries, his Serie A input consisting of one minute in a 2–0 away win against Calcio Catania on 3 May.

In June 2009, Milan announced the club would not exercise the buying option on Mattioni. On 26 August, RCD Mallorca signed him also on loan, from Associação Maga Esporte Clube company, with a pre-set price of about €2 million.[5] During the season he battled for first-choice status with Josemi, scoring from 40 meters in a 4–1 home win against Atlético Madrid[6] as the Balearic Islands team eventually finished fifth and qualified to the UEFA Europa League (later revoked).


In May 2010 Mallorca decided to sign Mattioni permanently for €2 million, subject to the decision of the administrator of the club, which was undergoing severe financial difficulties.[7] Finally the deal fell through, and he joined fellow La Liga side RCD Espanyol, from Maga.[8]

Early into his spell in Catalonia, Mattioni sustained a severe knee injury – left anterior cruciate ligament – going on to miss the entire 2010–11 season. Shortly after recovering he suffered the same injury in his right leg, being initially ruled out for another six months[9] and eventually nearly two years.[10][11][12]

Mattioni finally returned to action on 1 November 2012, appearing as a late substitute in a 1–3 away loss against Sevilla FC for the season's Copa del Rey.[13] His first league appearance came on 2 February of the following year, as he started and played the full 90 minutes in a 3–2 home win over Levante UD.[14]
