Nashville Soccer Club signed Uruguayan winger Rodrigo Piñeiro from Danubio FC in Uruguay’s First Division. The 21-year-old’s contract is guaranteed through the 2023 season.
The attacking midfielder can play wide and centrally, adding to the width and versatility to the current attacking core. Despite an unusual 2020 campaign, the Uruguayan was able to strongly produce while on loan with Danubio FC by recording three goals and three assists in 1,472 minutes of action. He started in 93 percent of Danubio FC’s matches and was involved in 41 percent of the club’s goals last season.
At the international level, Piñeiro has made two appearances for Uruguay’s U-20 squad, while sharing the pitch with fellow Major League Soccer standouts Diego Rossi and Brian Rodríguez.
