The former Almagro captain has joined newly-relegated Almirante Brown as they get into the Primera B Metropolitana.
Bruno Centeno, 26 years old, comes from Almagro. The goalkeeper has been a pillar- and captain- for the Jose Ingenieros team under the command of former manager Carlos Mayor, ending with a mid-table finish on this last season, and having played the previous promotion playoffs for 2013, and having lost the finals against Brown (Adrogue) on penalty kicks. The goalkeeper started his career in the San Lorenzo de Almagro youth teams and was loaned (and eventually transferred) to Almagro in accordance to a feeder club agreement between the two clubs.
Regarding his signing, Centeno has said “Es lindo llegar al club y tener la confianza de arrancar atajando. Yo trabajo para aportar mi experiencia” (“It is nice to get to the club and have enough confidence to be the starting goalkeeper. I do my job to bring my experience” and “El equipo viene golpeado por el descenso y es una realidad, pero hay que poner a almirante en el lugar que se merece” (“The team has been beat by relegation and it’s a reality, but we must put Almirante back in the place it belongs in”). Centeno comes in as the third reinforcement, after Collavini and Ferreiro having signed for the club.
Centeno was the substitute to Sergio Romero as goalkeeper for the Under-20’s world cup of 2007, and has sparred for Alfio Basile’s Argentina main team.
