Carmona tried out for AC Pisa 1909 U17 team between January 22 and February 1, 2013. This National Italian League Team was coached by former Serie ¨A¨ pro player Christian Amoroso. Amoroso offered a spot to Carmona de Ville. Amoroso defined ¨Carmó¨ (this is the nickname his teammates called him!), “as a very smart player who would have been very important for our team“. He also said:
“Seeing more places and meeting different people will allow Carmona to do a lot of new experiences that will make him smarter than the classic guys and certainly a good young man.”
Unfortunately, due to expected delays on international/clearance transfer from the Italian Federation and because the Allievi Nazionale Italian League was scheduled to end on April 21, the transfer operation was cancelled. Carmona went to Denmark then where he ended up signing for HB Køge on Feb 18, 2013.
Christian kept in communication with us and was hoping to invite Juanjo to sign for his U18 AC Pisa team in Jan 2014 pending releases of players in the winter transfer window.
Christian is an incredible talented coach with ample experience as a pro soccer player in Italy (ACF Fiorentina, Bologna, AC Pisa) and whom Carmona would have loved to play for and hopes to do so in the future.
