Ciprian Tătăruşanu was born in Bucharest on 9 February 1986. He developed at Juventus București, for whom he made his debut in the Liga II, the second division of Romanian football. In 2006, he joined Gloria Bistrița and then, in 2008, he moved to Steaua București, where he was able to establish himself as the first-choice goalkeeper the following season. His spell at Steaua opened the doors to the Romanian national team: since 2010, he’s been a key figure for his country, playing 70 times and being the man between the sticks at the 2016 European Championship.
In 2014, after 186 appearances, two league titles, one Romanian Cup and one Romanian Super Cup, he moved to Italy to play for Fiorentina in Serie A. He took to the pitch 101 times in three seasons for the Viola but never experienced life under his future Coach, Stefano Pioli.
In 2017, he decided to move to a new country and join French side Nantes, where he remained for two seasons, the first of which he experienced under Claudio Ranieri. In total, he made 67 appearances for Les Canaris, playing in Ligue 1, the French Cup and the French League Cup during his spell there. He then signed for Lyon ahead of the 2019/20 season. An understudy to first-choice goalkeeper Anthony Lopes, he played six times for Rudi Garcia’s team. He has now chosen to return to Serie A and join AC Milan.
Standing at 198 cm, he's always been an agile and capable shot-stopper. Ciprian is very experienced and reliable: more than 400 appearances in three different countries are testament to this. A new goalkeeper of international calibre has been added to the squad.
