Emiliano Daniel Armenteros (born 18 January 1986) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for Mexican club Santos Laguna on loan from Chiapas F.C. as a left midfielder.

Club career[edit]


Born in Monte Grande, Buenos Aires, Armenteros started playing professionally for Club Atlético Banfield, making his Primera División debuts at only 17. In 2005, he was sold to Club Atlético Independiente for roughly US$1 million.

During his two-season spell with Los Diablos Rojos, Armenteros was an undisputed starter in spite of his young age.


Armenteros joined Sevilla FC in 2007, on loan, with the La Liga club having an option to buy for 2 million at the season's end. He played almost exclusively with the reserves in Segunda División in his beginnings, only missing two league games in 42 in his first year and scoring seven goals as the team retained their recently acquired division status.

Armenteros made his Spanish top flight debut on 19 October 2008, playing 15 minutes in a 1–0 away win against UD Almería. He collected a further three substitute appearances over the course of the campaign, netting in a 2–0 success at CD Numancia.[1]

On 4 August 2009, after completing a medical examination, Armenteros moved to neighbouring Xerez CD on loan.[2] On 4 October he scored the club's first-ever top division goal in a 1–1 home draw against Málaga CF,[3][4] and welcomed his first child, Sofía, on the 27th.[5] Xerez eventually suffered immediate relegation back.

On 15 July 2010, still on loan, Armenteros signed with second division club Rayo Vallecano. He netted a career-best 20 goals – including a hat-trick on 20 November 2010 in a 3–1 home win against SD Ponferradina[6][7][8]– as the Madrid outskirts team returned to the top level after eight years.

International career[edit]

Armenteros was part of the Argentina under-20 squad that won the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship held in the Netherlands, appearing in five out of seven games.[9]
