“After the tournament, Matteo explained to us that he really liked the European experience and that he wanted to continue his career there,” said CF Montreal sports director Olivier Renard in a press release.

It’s good that he can do it with our partner club.”

Schiavoni was also invited to CF Montreal’s winter training camp. Since joining the Academy in 2019, he has played through the U-14, U-15, U-17 and U-23 ranks.
