Brisbane Roar is delighted to announce the signing of forward Carlo Armiento ahead of the Isuzu UTE A-League 2022/23 season.
Joining the Roar from West Australian club Perth Glory, the 23-year-old is looking forward to pulling on the orange and black for the upcoming season.
“I’m excited and honoured with the opportunity to be joining one of the most successful clubs in Australia,” he said.
“I can’t wait to get over to Brisbane to meet my new teammates, coaches and supporters.”
Known for his versatility in the front three, Armiento provides a left-sided attacking quality that head coach Warren Moon was looking for.
The young striker is hoping to make an important contribution to the team this upcoming season.
“I want to help contribute and play my part whether that is assisting or scoring goals and supporting my teammates, we play to win silverware and I’m hoping to help the Roar win as many games as possible to set us up to play finals football,” Armiento said.
Born and raised in Adelaide, Armiento made his mark for Adelaide United during the 2017/18 Y-League season, finishing as the team’s top goal-scorer, netting 12 goals in all competitions.
The following season he signed a youth scholarship contract with the South Australian team for the 2018/19 season, making his professional debut against Melbourne Victory as a substitute.
Armiento then linked up with Glory ahead of the 2019/20 season, scoring his first goal for Glory against Shanghai Shenhua in the 2020 AFC Champions League Group Stage.
The former Adelaide City junior went on to add a further three A-League goals across his 22 appearances during the 2020/21 season.
Unfortunately, an ACL injury ruled Armiento out of the entire 2021/22 campaign.
The South Australian recently made his return to the pitch, coming on as a substitute in a pre-season friendly against NPL Western Australia club Inglewood United earlier this month.
Armiento has remained optimistic throughout his rehab, looking at the positives the time away from the field has allowed him to do.
“My body is in amazing shape due to all the hard work over the past 12 months and having my first hit was great,” he said.
“However, I’m hungry for more game time, I feel fitter, stronger than ever and can’t wait to get back on the park playing at the highest level helping the Roar achieve success.
“I’m buzzing for the season to start.”
Further signing announcements will be made shortly.
