Catalano was an attacking midfielder and he's regarded as one of the best ever players in the history of Messina where he played from 1984 to 1988 scoring 40 goals in 142 matches. During his career which started in 1977 he mostly played in Serie B and C but he also played 3 Serie A matches with Pistoiese in 1980-81 and 2 with Udinese in 1989-90. The midfielder also played for many other teams like Potenza, Triestina, Reggina and Catania among the others and he retired in 1994. When playing at Messina he charmed with his playstyle and he could do whatever he wanted with the ball on his feet. He could simply do everything: dictating tempos, dribbling, scoring, crossing, taking free kicks and corners. However he also made many mistakes so he was sometimes loved and sometimes hated. In a 6-0 win against Monopoli he dribbled half of his opponents before scoring one of the goals. He played in a squad capable to remain undefeated in home games for two seasons and to eliminate Roma from the Coppa Italia.
