Iván Rodrigo Piris (born 10 March 1989) is a Paraguayan footballer who plays as a full-back for Monterrey in the Liga MX.

Club career[edit]

Cerro Porteno[edit]

Piris spent three years at Cerro Porteño, playing a particularly large role in the club's run to the semi-finals of the 2011 Copa Libertadores. His performances in the competition alerted clubs around the world of his ability, and it looked unlikely that he would stay with Cerro Porteño. He eventually signed for Brazilian club São Paulo FC for a fee of alleged €2 million.[1] However, São Paulo bought a portion of economic rights on Piris and the registration rights was held by a proxy club Deportivo Maldonado, the entity to receive transfer fee. São Paulo signed Piris on a two-year loan deal on 19 July 2011.[2][3]

São Paulo[edit]

Piris joined up with his new team-mates after the 2011 Copa America after São Paulo announced his signing on Thursday 15 July.[4]


On 1 August 2012, Piris was loaned to Italian side Roma for a fee of €700,00, with the option of purchasing his rights at the end of the 2012–13 season for €4 million.[5] He was virtually ever-present in the side under Zdenek Zeman but, following the arrival of Aurelio Andreazzoli, he found playing time more difficult to come by, having to compete with Vasilis Torosidis.

Sporting Lisbon[edit]

Piris signed with Sporting on loan for the 2013–14 season. [6]

International career[edit]

Piris was part of Paraguay's 2011 Copa America runners-up side. He played in the semi-final victory over Venezuela,[7] as well as the 3-0 loss to Uruguay in the final.[8]
