Youth career

He joined Juventus in order to strengthen the Primavera team but was immediately promoted to the senior squad as their no.1 Italian international Gianluigi Buffon was injured for several months. He was registered in Juventus's 24-men UEFA Europa League first team squad (list A) as the fourth keeper, behind Gianluigi Buffon, former Sampdoria teammate, Marco Storari and Austrian international, Alex Manninger.

Costantino played most of the games for the "Primavera Squadra".
