Notable: The prize that Marco Rojas, the “Chilean Messi” who is close to signing in Colo Colo, won for the Italian star Del Piero

In 2013 both players coincided in the A-League, the first division of Australian football, with Rojas being awarded as the best of the season over the Italian star.

Colo Colo has everything ready to hit the transfer market in the next few hours. Marco Rojas, the “Chilean Messi” from the other side of the world, is close to being Cacique’s second reinforcement for the second half of the 2022 season, this after the Argentine attacker Diego Bouzat was presented.

Rojas is the son of a Chilean father, but he has represented the New Zealand team for many years, even playing the 2012 London Olympics and the 2017 Confederations Cupa contest that also played the Chilean team led by Juan Antonio Pizzi in Russia.

His CV highlights steps for the Australian, Swiss, Danish, New Zealand football and also in the German and Dutch First Division, where he defended the jerseys of VfB Stuttgart and SC Heerenveen. He currently plays for Melbourne Victory in Australia.

It is precisely in Australian rules football where Rojas scored an important achievement in his careerbeing awarded as the best player in the A-League, the first division of Australian football, in the 2012-13 season while fulfilling his first stage in the Melbourne Victory.

The curious thing about the award? It was won by nothing more and nothing less than the Italian star Alessandro Del Piero, who this season defended the colors of Sydney F. C after 19 years breaking it all at Juventus.

In addition to these distinctions, with 30 years in the body the footballer has in his personal record the award for Best Young Player in the A-League (2012-13) and being voted Oceania Footballer of the Year in 2012.

The sports management commanded by Daniel Morón has the approval of Gustavo Quinteros for the arrival of Marco Rojas, who can play as a left winger or creative midfielder, so negotiations have already begun to take over their services.
