The former Boca Juniors striker has dropped down from Primera B’s Fenix to Primera C’s upcoming -and newly promoted- San Miguel.
Carreño, now 35 years old, has played for Primera B’s Fénix the last transitional tournament. Known for his ability to work the sides as a winger, he has also played for teams such as Boca Juniors (Primera División), Nueva Chicago (Nacional B), Chacarita Juniors (Nacional B), San Lorenzo (Primera División), Puebla FC (Mexico), FC Thun (Switzerland), Lanús (Primera División), Tiro Federal (Nacional B at the time), San Martín San Juan (Nacional B), and Millonarios, Once Caldas, Santa Fé and La Equidad (Colombia).
San Miguel will be pleased to receive the experienced Carreño, as their leading striker for last season, Braian Chavez, has left for Primera B’s Deportivo Armenio, though there have been doubts whether if Carreño will be able to upkeep Chavez’s streak as he has only scored 45 times through 321 games in his career.
He will be joined also by former Boca teammate Matías Arce, who’s coming from Belgrano de Arequito (Argentino C).
