Transfer news: Roar part ways with Costa Rican striker

Brisbane Roar has confirmed it has parted ways with striker Jean Carlos Solorzano after an injury riddled 2015-16 campaign.

The 28-year-old Costa Rican international played 63 games (18 goals) in all competitions across two stints at the club (2010/11 and 2014-2016). 

Solorzano was hampered by injury in the 2015/16 campaign and played only seven matches (two as a starter, for no goals).

Roar Football Operations Manager Craig Moore said Solorzano - widely known among team-mates and fans as "Nico" - was a popular member of the Hyundai A-League squad and beloved by fans for his "jazz hands" goal celebrations.

"The club thanks Nico for the tremendous effort he has put in at the Roar despite several injury setbacks that sidelined him for lengthy periods," Moore said.

"He has battled hard to get fit again and we all wish him the very best for the next chapter of his football career." 

Solorzano tonight posted a heart-felt thank you for his time with the Roar and said Brisbane had become his "home".
