“Bruno is a player who will complement our squad and supply another dimension to our final third,” Popovic said.

“His qualities speak for themselves and having worked with him in the past, we believe the environment at Melbourne Victory will bring the best out of Bruno.

“Bruno is a leader and will add more experience to the squad to help us achieve success this season.”

Fornaroli was also pleased to be returning to Melbourne, where he initially made his name in the A-League.

“This is an exciting opportunity for me to join a Club like Melbourne Victory and work with the boss again,” Fornaroli said.
