Costa Rican striker Jean Carlos Solorzano has returned to Brisbane Roar until the end of the season, three years after winning the double with the Queensland side.
Head coach Mike Mulvey said he was pleased to see Solorzano - known as Nico by team-mates - back at Roar, where he scored 11 goals in the victorious Hyundai A-League 2010/11 season.
He then left the club to join Melbourne Victory - also on loan from his parent club in Costa Rica, LD Alajuelense - but failed to rediscover the form which had made him a sensation in Brisbane and quickly fell out of favour.
He joined Puntarenas in Costa Rica last June but has made only a handful of appearances for the side.
“As a club, we were looking for a quality player to add depth to the squad after the departure of Kwame Yeboah,” Mulvey said.
“We wanted to add a goal-scoring option off the bench, someone who is capable of scoring late goals and Nico is proven goal-scorer in this competition.”
Solorzano will wear the number 16 jersey and could be available for selection for this Sunday’s Hyundai A-League home match against Central Coast Mariners pending his international clearance.2 comments
