Juan Pablo Carrizo (born 6 May 1984) is an Argentine footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Serie A club Inter.

Club career[edit]

River Plate[edit]

Carrizo made his debut with River Plate on 29 January 2006 against Tiro Federal, keeping a clean sheet in River's 5-0 thrashing of the Rosario club. He played with River Plate until the last game of the 2008 Clausura, helping the team obtain the national championship.


Carrizo was supposed to move to Lazio in the summer (July–August) transfer window of 2007, but the deal fell through over complications regarding Carrizo's eligibility for European citizenship.[1] He finally registered with the Lega Nazionale Professionisti on 6 June 2008.

On 8 July 2008, Carrizo arrived in Rome and was formally presented to the media and fans as a Lazio player for the first time, stating his ambition of winning the Derby della Capitale against local rivals Roma.

However, Carrizo's lost his place as first choice goalkeeper during his first season after a 1–4 home defeat to Cagliari on 25 January 2009 when coach Delio Rossi opted to replace him with Uruguayan Fernando Muslera. Throughout his time on the Lazio bench, Carrizo repeatedly voiced his discontent at losing his place, and thus Lazio elected to fine him €20,000.[2]

At the end of the season, Carrizo was loaned out to newly promoted Spanish club Real Zaragoza as part of the deal which saw Matuzalém become a permanent Lazio player until 2012.[3] On 18 June 2010 he returned on loan to River Plate, where he signed until 30 June 2011.


On 31 January 2012 Carrizo was loaned out with option rights to Catania replacing its former goalkeeper Mariano Andújar who had returned on loan to Estudiantes de la Plata in Argentina following a fallout with the club's directors. Carrizo made his debut for the club on 22 February 2012, in a 0–1 away victory over A.C. Siena.


On 31 January 2013, in the last day of winter transfer window, he joined Italian side Inter Milan on a loan move until the end of 2012–13 season.[4] The Argentinian served as a second choice goalkeeper after Luca Castellazzi suffered an injury.[5] Carrizo made his debut for the club against Bologna in Serie A on 10 March 2013, with Inter who lost the match 1–0 at San Siro.[6] This was his first and only appearance for 2012–13 season, and Inter finished the Serie A season in a disappointing 9th place. After the season finished, he extended his contract until 2015.[7]

During the 2013 International Champions Cup, held in United States of America, in the team's final match against Juventus for seventh place, Carrizo made 2 penalty saves and also scored a penalty kick himself, helping the team to win 9–8 on penalties.[8] Carrizo played his first official match for the new season on 20 October 2013 in an away match against Torino, entering in the field to replace Samir Handanović, who was sent off (Carrizo in fact entered the field by replacing Kovačić), and save a penalty kick against Alessio Cerci in an evidential 3–3 draw at Stadio Olimpico.[9] Six days later, in a league game against Hellas Verona, Carrizo played his first match as a starter in a 4–2 win over in San Siro.[10] In December 2013, Carrizo debuted with Inter in Coppa Italia, playing full 90 minutes in a 3–2 win over against Trapani.[11]

His most notable performance for Inter was in a friendly match against Real Madrid in Berkeley, California on July 26, 2014 in the International Champions Cup where he made two saves, contributing to Inter's penalty shootout victory over the current European Champions, earning him a Man of the Match award. On June 30 Inter announced Carrizo had extended his Inter contract until 2017.[12]

International career[edit]

Carrizo made his international debut for Argentina against Chile on 18 April 2007. He was the first choice goalkeeper during Diego Maradona's first games as Argentina's coach during 2009.
