Although he was born in Lanús, south Greater Buenos Aires, Volante begun his career in 1928 at northern Platense, a Vicente López club. In 1929 he transferred to San Lorenzo, with which he reached the semifinals of the local league. Between 1930 and 1931, Volante was loaned for free to Vélez Sársfield to play in the team's Pan-American tour.
Once there, Volante took part in the historical Rennes 1934-35 squad and also played for Olympique Lillois and CA Paris. During 1938 FIFA World Cup, held in France, he was hired by Brazil National Football Team to work as a massagist. The fear from World War II and a nice relationship built with Brazilian players made Volante transfer to Flamengo, where he would side with Brazilian stars Domingos da Guia and Leonidas.
In Brazil, the position of defensive midfielder is called volante, because Carlos defended one of the most popular clubs in the country, and his way of play popularized the term volante.
