Getafe sign Argentina keeper Abbondanzieri

MADRID, July 20 (Reuters) -- Getafe have completed the signing of Argentine international goalkeeper Roberto Abbondanzieri and compatriot Lucas Licht, the Primera Liga club said on Thursday.

"As soon as I heard about the interest from Getafe I spoke to my representative because I wanted to come here," Abbondanzieri told a news conference.

Abbondanzieri was Argentina's first choice goalkeeper at the World Cup finals and moves from Boca Juniors. Argentine media have reported that Getafe will pay around 1.5 million euros ($1.90 million).

The 33-year-old has won three Libertadores Cups and two World Club Cups since joining Boca in 1997. He was voted South American goalkeeper of the year in 2003.

Licht, a versatile 25-year-old left back, moves from Gimnasia-La Plata to replace Spain international Mariano Pernia, who has signed for near neighbours Atletico Madrid.

"I have heard a lot about Pernia and am really motivated because I know I have a tough act to follow," said Licht.

Getafe, who are coached by former German international Bernd Schuster, finished in ninth place in the Primera Liga last season.
