Ernesto Goñi Ameijenda (born 13 January 1985) is an Uruguayan footballer who currently plays as a left back for Uruguayan club Racing Club de Montevideo. His nickname is "Teto", an abbreviation of his name.

Club career[edit]

Goñi was born in Montevideo. A Defensor Sporting youth graduate, he made his senior debut with Racing Club de Montevideo in 2005. In August of that year, he went on a trial at Italy's Sambenedettese Calcio, but nothing came of it.[1]

On 8 January 2010 Goñi moved to Club Nacional de Football on loan.[2] He returned to his parent club in January 2011, and in July of that year, moved abroad after agreeing to a deal with Argentine Primera B Nacional side Quilmes Atlético Club.

After achieving promotion to Primera División during his first season and being a regular starter afterwards, Goñi moved to Estudiantes de La Plata on 8 July 2013.[3] After being sparingly used, he rescinded his link and moved to fellow league team Club Atlético Tigre on 28 January 2015.[4]

On 8 January 2016 Goñi signed for UD Almería in Segunda División.[5]
