Melbourne Victory is pleased to announce that Marco Rojas will return to the club on a two and a half-year deal.
The exciting midfielder previously had two stints with the Victory from 2011/12 – 2012/13, and again in the 2016/17 season. During that time he played 75 games, scored 28 goals and was awarded a Johnny Warren Medal.
The New Zealand international will add to the club’s attacking options, which includes captain Ola Toivonen, Andrew Nabbout and Robbie Kruse.
Head Coach, Carlos Salvachua, said he was pleased to see Marco return to the Victory dressing room.
“We are very happy to have Marco join our squad for the second half of the season, and I’m sure a lot of members and fans are excited to see Marco back at the Club too,” Salvachua said.
“It was terrific to hear that Marco wanted to return to the Victory family. I believe his decision to come back says a lot about the Club environment.
“We know Marco is a very talented player. He is a goal scorer, he will strengthen our side and help us play the attacking brand of football our members and fans expect.”
Speaking to melbournevictory.com.au, Rojas said the club has the squad to work their way back into contention this season.
The 28 year-old also revealed he can’t wait to play in front of the Melbourne Victory faithful again.
