César Andrés Carignano (born 28 September 1982) is an Argentine footballer who plays as a forward for Patronato de Paraná in Primera B Nacional.Quality on fm 2005



Carignano started his professional career in 2000 with Colón in his homeland Argentina. He spent 4 years at the club, scoring 27 goals in 79 games. At the start of the 2004–05 season FC Basel paid ₤1.8m to acquire his services. His fee did not seem to be paying off as he played only 19 games and scoring a mere 7 goals from 2004-2007. Basel decided to loan him out to América for the 2007 Copa Libertadores in hope that he would rediscover his past form. He did not play any games during his time at América and returned to Basel ahead of the 2007–08 season. In January 2008, he was released by Basel due to recurrent injuries.

Carignano then returned to Colón de Santa Fe. In his second spell with Colón he struggled, making most of his appearances coming off the bench. After a few months he transferred to second division club Independiente Rivadavia. Subsequently, he played for Ferro and Atlético Rafaela[1] in the second division. In January 2013, Cesar signed contract for playing in Patronato de Paraná.[2]

National team[edit]

Carignano played 3 caps for Argentina. He earned these caps from 2003–2004, while he was still at Colón.[3]
