Bruno Fornaroli


Nicknamed El Tuna – or ‘The Prickly Pear’ – Fornaroli began his career at Uruguayan club Nacional, starring in the club’s youth ranks alongside Barcelona’s Luis Suarez, while he also represented Uruguay at under-17 level in 2003.

The striker’s breakout season came during his first senior campaign with Nacional in 2008, with Fornaroli scoring on 17 occasions in 37 appearances across the Uruguayan Primera Division and Copa Libertadores.

Following interest from Europe, Fornaroli completed spells for Serie A side Sampdoria and Greek Super League outfit Panathinaikos before returning to Uruguay to link up with most recent club Danubio FC.
