Club career

Montenegro began his professional career at Club Atlético Huracán in 1997; he went to represent Club Atlético Independiente (on three different spells, teaming up with sibling Ariel in the first), Olympique de Marseille (who loaned him three times during his contract, namely to Spanish outfits), FC Saturn Moscow Oblast in Russia, and Club Atlético River Plate (two stints).

His goal scoring record for Independiente is very impressive with 40 goals in 104 matches from midfield.

In 2006, Montenegro re-joined Independiente for a third time, often acting as team captain.

In 2009, the Mexican soccer club Club America was interested in his services. The first attempt to sign him failed, as the 2.5 million dollar offer was rejected by Independiente; the president of Independiente said that he will only be leaving for 6 million dollars. However, on July 17, 2009 it was confirmed that he will be playing for Club America for the sum of 3 million dollars. He made his goal scoring debut against Deportivo Toluca F.C.with a goal from half of the pitch. Club America won 7-2 that evening.

International career

Montenegro represented the Argentina Under-20 team at the 1999 FIFA World Youth Championship, and made his full international debut against Chile, on April 18, 2007.

He was called up again late in the following year (November 19, 2008) for a friendly against Scotland, with the national side now coached by Diego Maradona.
