Socceroo Colosimo joins Melbourne Heart

Socceroo and former Sydney FC star Simon Colosimo has signed a deal with new A-League club Melbourne Heart, officials said Wednesday.

The 31-year-old, who signed a ‘multi-year’ deal, had been tipped to return to his home city after a short stint ahead of the World Cup with FC Seoul in South Korea fell through.

“Simon has a wonderful technical ability and will also provide fantastic composure in defence,” head coach John van’t Schip said.

“He is capable of playing the ball out of defence and also provides excellent tackling and organisational ability.”

Colosimo would be given every opportunity to force his way into the Socceroos squad for the World Cup, including spending time abroad if need be, van’t Schip said.

The Heart, which makes its A-League debut next season, starting in August, earlier this week announced it had signed former Australian international striker John Aloisi.
