Belgrano announce Donnet signing


Belgrano took another positive step to strengthen their squad by signing 26-year old midfielder Matias Donnet. Matias, a former Union and Boca Juniors player, played for DC United during the second semester of 2006 where he scored 1 goal in 8 appearances. Donnet is a very skilled all-round midfielder with a taste for goal. Although he likes playing as a right winger, he is also comfortable playing central holding midfield and as left winger. He has played over 150 professional matches and scored 24 goals. He said he was looking forward to playing for Belgrano and that he wanted to get back to the level it saw him become one of Boca Juniors most reliable performers under the coaching of Carlos Bianchi. He was given the "Man of the Match" award for his goal in the final against Milan in the 2003 Interncontinental Cup (Boca won the cup after penalty shoot-out). The addition of Matias to the Belgrano midfield is certainly a quality one and we look forward to enjoying his silky passing and wonderful technique.
