Riccardo Maniero (born 26 November 1987) is an Italian footballer who plays for Serie B club Pescara, as a forward.
In August 2010 Maniero joined Pescara ahead of the 2010–11 Serie B campaign in co-ownership deal, for €450,000. Co-currently Juventus signed Luca Del Papa from Pescara also in co-ownership deal for €300,000. On the same day Pescara signed Raffaele Alcibiade in temporary deal from Juve. Maniero, however, failed to score regularly in Serie B. On 31 August 2012 he left for Serie B newcomer Ternana after Maniero was excluded from Pescara’s Serie A plan. Ternana also got midfielder Antonino Ragusa and defender Riccardo Brosco from Pescara on the same day.
On 19 June 2013 the co-ownership between Pescara and Juventus were terminated, which saw Maniero now 100% under Pescara’s contract for free as well as Del Papa under Juve for €100,000.
