Belgrano sign Pietravallo

Belgrano have announced the signing of 25-year old tenacious midfielder Juan Martin Pietravallo. A product of the Velez youth academy, Pietravallo played for several different clubs including Quilmes, Olimpo and Gimnasia LP before joining Nueva Chicago during the last season. Pietravallo's natural role as a defensive midfielder does not impede him to be a good passer and has also great athletic ability. This move should allow Belgrano to cover for the departure of Mario Bolatti, now in Porto FC.
