He waited until round 5 to play his first match as starter, due to Del Prete was unavailable in the last minute. He started again in round 13 (7 November 2009) against Gallipoli due to Del Prete's fitness and again in round 15 (28 November 2009), and from round 21 (9 January 2010) to round 23 (23 January) Coach Francesco Moriero also used Nicholas Guidi as emergency right back but soon used Semenzato since round 21.
