Patrice Bernier signed with the Montreal Impact on Monday, nine years after the 32-year-old midfielder left for Europe.

“I am extremely happy to be coming home to continue my playing career in Montreal with a return to the Impact,” said Bernier.

“MLS is a big project for me and for the organisation. At this point in my career, it is a challenge that really motivates me.”

“I am happy to be joining the league at the top of my game.”

After playing three seasons with the Montreal Impact from 2000-02, the Canadian international played for clubs in Norway, Germany and Denmark.

“We have been in talks with Patrice for quite some time and we are extremely pleased that he will be joining the Impact for the 2012 season,” Impact coach Jesse Marsch said.

“His years of experience in top leagues in Europe will provide the team with savvy and intelligence.”

“As a player, he is very sharp on the ball and his tactical awareness will be a great value in the midfield.”

“As a person, he is a good man and a strong leader. Patrice is very excited and ready for the challenge of helping our club reach the next level.”

Bernier becomes the second Canadian player signing after Greg Sutton.
