Austin FC loan Cecilio Dominguez to Club Guarani until inaugural MLS campaign


Austin FC have loaned winger Cecilio Dominguez to Paraguayan side Club Guarani, the club announced Tuesday. 

Dominguez, Austin's second-ever signing and first Designated Player, will play alongside Austin's first-ever signing Rodney Redes at Guarani. 

“We’re pleased to see Cecilio going on loan to Club Guarani in the Paraguayan Primera Division through the end of 2020,” Austin FC Sporting Director Claudio Reyna said in a statement. “Having him and Rodney Redes competing for the same club ahead of their move to Austin in 2021 is excellent. There are many benefits to this loan agreement, but obviously, it means Cecilio and Rodney will be able to start learning each other’s games, as well as maintaining match fitness before joining Austin FC in January 2021.” 

Dominguez made his professional debut at 17 in 2011 with Sol de America in Paraguay’s Primera Division. In 2014, he transferred to Cerro Porteño where he scored 33 league and cup goals in 81 appearances. In 2016, he transferred to Club America in Liga MX, going on to accumulate 74 league and cup appearances and 21 goals. He was also crowned Liga MX Apertura Champion in 2018. In 2019, Domínguez was signed by Argentina’s Club Atletico Independiente, becoming the club’s record signing. To date in his professional career, Dominguez has scored 73 goals in 288 club appearances.
