posted in: News

All White winger Marco Rojas has passed his medical and has completed his move to top Chilean club Colo-Colo.

The Chilean website DaleAlbo says he passed his medical exam easily and was to sign an 18-month deal with the club.

After arriving in Chile at the weekend, Rojas has expressed his joy at joining Santiago-based Colo-Colo, who have won 32 Premera Divisīon titles.

“I feel happy to be in the country where my father was born,” Rojas told website ADN.

“It’s the third time I’m in Chile, and it’s an honour for me and my family.

“I have faith in my abilities and I’m here to work hard and see where I go.”

Meanwhile, Melbourne Victory director of football John Didulica thanked Rojas for his time at the club, confirming the 30-year-old Hamilton-born player had left.

“Marco played a significant role in the team during all three periods he’s been with the club and his contribution will continue to be a part of Melbourne Victory’s history,” Didulica said.

Victory are looking to replace Rojas with former Manchester United star Nani, who would become a marquee player in the A-League.

Portuguese veteran Nani (35) departed Italian Serie B club Venezia last week.

Apart from seven years at Manchester United, where he won four English Premier League titles, Nani has played for some of the biggest clubs in Spain, Turkey, Portugal, Italy and the United States.
