Andrea Orlandi joined Barcelona in 2005 from Alaves, where he was struggling for playing time. Despite being a left-winger, Orlandi made his debut for the first team under Frank Rijkaard as a left-back in a 3-1 defeat to Athletico Bilbao. It was a remarkable performance by the Spaniard during the 74 minutes he played that evening. He appeared in another Copa Catalunya game for Barcelona before joining Premier League club Swansea. In 2018, he signed for Chennaiyan FC and featured nine times for the Supermachans before joining Italian side Virtus Entella. Unfortunately, Orlandi had to retire soon after because of a heart problem.
