Melbourne Victory signed Johnny Warren medallist and club Golden Boot winner Marco Rojas back to the club in August 2016.
Rojas made 50 appearances for Victory from 2011-13 before spending the next three years in Europe.
He was born in New Zealand and signed his first Hyundai A-League contract with Wellington Phoenix in 2009, where he played for two seasons.
The winger then crossed to Victory, making 23 appearances in his debut season before setting the Hyundai A-League alight during the 2012/13 campaign.
In that season, he scored 15 goals and won the Johnny Warren Medal, the A-League Young Footballer of the Year award and Victory’s Golden Boot.
His performances led to interest abroad, and he signed with VfB Stuttgart in Germany.
He later had stints on loan to Greuther Furth (Germany) and FC Thun (Switzerland), with the latter move yielding 37 appearances and four goals.
Rojas made his senior international debut for New Zealand in 2011. In 2015, he was also named in Victory’s inaugural Team of the Decade.
