Héctor Fabián Carini Hernández (born 26 December 1979 in Montevideo) is a Uruguayan football goalkeeper who plays for Juventud de Las Piedras

Club career

Carini played for 3 seasons in Uruguayan club Danubio F.C., before signing with Italian club Juventus F.C. in January 2001,[1] where he spent two seasons and was used mainly as a substitute goalkeeper. During the summer of 2002, he nearly completed a loan move to Arsenal F.C., but at the last minute, the move fell through due to the player's wage demands.[2] He moved instead to Standard Liège, where he spent 2 years on loan.

In 2004, Carini left Juventus for Internazionale, when he was exchanged for Fabio Cannavaro in a transfer which was worth €10 million.[3] Despite being the first choice goalkeeper for his country, Carini was the third choice goalkeeper for Inter. After spending the 2005–06 season on loan at Cagliari, he went back to Inter, where he became the fourth goalkeeper behind Francesco Toldo, Júlio César and Paolo Orlandoni. Carini did not see a single minute of action over the next two years. Before the 2007–08 season, he moved to newly promoted Spanish club Murcia to compete with incumbent first-choice goalkeeper Antonio Notario. He signed a three-year deal with the Brazilian club Atlético Mineiro, arriving on a free transfer.[4] Atlético Mineiro rescinded the contract to Fabián Carini, for what they will have to pay a fine to him. The Uruguayan goalkeeper had contract until 2011.

After an experience at Atletico Mineiro, 31-year-old goalkeeper Fabian Carini has signed a one season deal for Peñarol.[5]

International career

He played for the Uruguay national football team, which he represented at the 2007 Copa América. Carini made his debut for the national squad on 17 June 1999 in a friendly match (2–3 win) in Ciudad del Este against Paraguay.[6]
