Median midfielder, he grew up in AC Milan who diverted him to Varese for the 1974-1975 season. He also found little space there and returned to base for the next championship. With the current championship and after playing only one game, he moved to Monza together with other future Rossoneri such as Antonelli, Buriani and Tosetto. He put together a good number of appearances so that Nils Liedholm decided to make him the new median for the 1978-1979 season. He became an unmovable pawn and scored five goals, including the brace in the return derby which was very heavy for the achievement of the star. Milan were at a disadvantage of two goals and were in danger of being caught up by Perugia, but De Vecchi in the final with two almost identical goals, from outside the area and headed to the same bottom left corner, brought the game in a tie at 80 minutes and 89 ', resulting decisive for the conquest of the 10th red and black championship. Also in the following season it was fundamental for the game of the team of the neo-technician Giacomini, playing all the games except one, with a booty of four goals. The season ended with relegation due to the black and white deal. He then spent the 1980-1981 season in the cadet series, from which Milan was promoted immediately. The new coach Luigi Radice, however, decided to replace him with Adelio Moro, then moved to Ascoli, where he stopped for the following three seasons. The performance in black and white jersey convinced Rino Marchesi to take him to Naples for 1984-1985, in which however he was set aside the following year and sent to Bologna. At 31 he moved to Reggiana, in Serie C1, ending his career at 37 years old, in June 1992.


He retired at the end of the 1991-1992 season, started his coaching career, training among others the SPAL in Serie C1, Cosenza, Como and Venezia in Serie B, and then started training the teams of the Milan youth categories.
