Joel Joseph Chianese (born 15 February 1990) is an Australian professional football (soccer) player who plays as a forward for Perth Glory in the A-League.

Career[edit]

Sydney FC[edit]

Chianese made his senior debut in the first game of the 2011 Asian Champions League as a substitute for Hirofumi Moriyasu in the 0–3 loss against Kashima Antlers at the Sydney Football Stadium.[1][2] His A-League debut for the club didn't arrive until Round 19 of the 2011–12 A-League season, coming on as a substitute in the 5–2 thrashing at the hands of Newcastle Jets at the Sydney Football Stadium.[3] Chianese scored twice in the first final of the 2011/12 season against the Wellington Phoenix FC, however it was not enough as Sydney lost 3–2.[4]

National Premier Leagues[edit]

Following his release from Sydney FC, Chianese signed with National Premier Leagues NSW club Sydney United, and undertook a 2-week trial in England with Football League One club Swindon Town.[5] This trial proved unsuccessful despite scoring twice in a friendly against Cheltenham Town,[6] and he returned to Australia.[7]

Chianese left Sydney United at the conclusion of the 2014 National Premier Leagues NSW season and signed with crosstown rivals Bonnyrigg White Eagles for 2015,[8] for whom he scored a brace on debut.[9]

Malaysia[edit]

In March, 2015 it was reported that Chianese had traveled to New Zealand to play for Auckland City FC in the 2014–15 OFC Champions League, however Auckland failed to register him in time for the competition.[10] However, in a bizarre twist of fate, Auckland City then sold him onto to Malaysia Premier League club Sabah FA for the remainder of the 2015 Malaysia Premier League after they had released Singaporean Fazrul Nawaz for disciplinary reasons.[11]

In December 2015 it was announced that Chianese had decided to join Negeri Sembilan FA, linking up with former National Soccer League winning coach Gary Phillips, and a host of former A-League players for the 2016 Malaysia Premier League season[12]

Despite scoring 10 goals in 15 league appearances, Chianese was released from his contract mid-season with Negeri Sembilan FA along with fellow Australian Andrew Nabbout.[13]

Perth Glory[edit]

At the end of August 2016, Chianese returned to the A-League, joining Perth Glory.[14]
