Newcastle Jets sign exciting attacker Reno Piscopo

Newcastle Jets are excited to announce the signing of Reno Piscopo on a two year deal.

Piscopo joins from the Wellington Phoenix where he spent the past three seasons scoring eight goals across 61 games in all competitions.

Piscopo has an impressive CV, having previously spent time in Italy, most notably at Serie A sides Torino and Inter Milan, playing for their youth sides.

The former Phoenix attacker recently starred for the A-League All-Stars against Barcelona, scoring one goal and putting on an assist in the 3-2 loss against the La Liga giants.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – MAY 25: Dani Alves of FC Barcelona and Reno Piscopo of the All-Stars compete for the ball during the match between FC Barcelona and the A-League All-Stars at Accor Stadium on May 25, 2022, in Sydney, Australia.

Piscopo is ecstatic to be joining the Jets and is looking forward to getting to work under Manager Arthur Papas.

“I’m excited to be joining the Jets. Their attacking style of play really suits me and I can’t wait to get started.

I’m looking forward to working with Arthur and learning from him. His style of football excites me and I can’t wait to start.”

Newcastle Jets Manager Arthur Papas is delighted to have secured Piscopo’s signature.

“We are excited to welcome Reno Piscopo to the Newcastle Jets. In Reno, we have signed one of Australia’s most creative and talented players.

It’s a key position player that will add a lot of quality to our attacking game with his ability to draw players in, go past players and play the final pass.

We held talks with Reno and his family over a long period of time and know we are getting a player who is full of ambition, drive and is coming to Newcastle to make a difference.

Without doubt, a future Socceroo who is good enough to be on the plane to Qatar with our National Team.”
