Career

Calvano is a defender with Italian citizenship who made 13 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A appearances for Botafogo before moving to Europe. [1]

Newcastle Jets

In May 2011, it was announced that he signed a two-year contract with Newcastle Jets FC, joining them for the 2011–12 and 2012–13 A-League seasons. [2] Calvano impressed during his first season with the Jets. Despite giving away three penalties he was very solid in the back which persuaded incoming coach Gary Van Egmond to keep him in the starting eleven. He scored his first goal for Newcastle in a round five match against Perth Glory in the 2012-13 A-League season. Tiago was released by the Newcastle Jets on 17 January 2013, due to lack of game time and a rumoured falling out of favour with head coach Van Egmond. [3]

Sydney FC

On 17 January 2013, Tiago signed with Sydney FC as an injury replacement for Pascal Bosschaart. [4] Coming straight into the starting eleven after signing for Sydney, he made his debut in Sydney's 7–1 demolition of Wellington Phoenix at Allianz Stadium. Sydney made his position permanent, signing a one-year deal with the club for the 2013–14 A-League season.

Minnesota United

Towards the end of his contract, Tiago and Sydney FC agreed to a mutual termination of his contract to allow him to take up an offer of a contract in the United States for NASL side Minnesota United FC. [5]

Harrisburg City Islanders

Tiago signed with USL side Harrisburg City Islanders on 23 March 2017. [6]
