Career Summary

Five years ago, Real Salt Lake brought a young Argentinean striker into its side by the name of Fabian Espíndola … and now the Utah side is hoping it has unearthed a similar talent in his countryman, Emiliano Bonfigli. The lanky striker proved worth taking a flyer on in the MLS Supplemental Draft, and the 23-year-old showed more than enough finishing prowess during RSL’s opening preseason camp to earn a spot on the team’s forward depth chart. With a congested schedule ahead, expect Bonfigli to be firmly in the mix for the “spot starter” role up top alongside fellow “young guns” Paulo Jr. and Cody Arnoux.

Professional Career
Began professional career with Club Almargo of the Argentine Primera B Metropolitana, the regionalized third division of Argentina … Scored 16 goals in 13 contests (all starts) in Almagro’s 2010/11 campaign … Moved on to Manta F.C. of the Ecuadoran Serie A (first division) for the “second phase” of its 2011 season in August, notching a pair of assists across 18 appearances (7 starts).
