Victory's Rojas leaves A-League for Europe

Melbourne Victory star Marco Rojas has confirmed he is leaving the A-League to play in Europe.

But the New Zealander, who this week won the Johnny Warren Medal as the A-League's player of the season, hasn't revealed where he intends to play.

Rojas' father and manager Rodi told the Victory on Thursday of his son's plans to head to Europe, which had been anticipated.

But with a deal with a new club yet to be signed, he is keeping his cards close to his chest.

There has been speculation the classy, fleet-footed attacker, who combined 15 goals and eight assists this season, could be headed to the German Bundesliga.

Werder Bremen and Stuttgart have both been linked with Rojas.

The New Zealand international said the Victory had helped develop him into the player he has become and he had enjoyed his time in Melbourne.

But he is delighted to be fulfilling an ambition.

"It's every footballer's dream to play in Europe and I'm over-the-moon to be able to say I'm about to live that dream very soon," Rojas said.

Victory coach Ange Postecoglou said his disappointment at losing a fine player was mixed with happiness at having helped him go on to bigger things.

"While we would have loved to have seen him stay here at Melbourne Victory for a little longer, we knew we couldn't stand in the way of his European ambitions," Postecoglou said.

"He's rightly attracted plenty of attention around the globe for his efforts this year."
