Solano heads back to Peru to finish career

Nolberto Solano is returning home to Peru to finish his playing career with Universitario.

The 34-year-old former Aston Villa, Newcastle and West Ham winger is leaving Greek club Larissa to link up with new Universitario boss Juan Reynoso.

''My signing happens thanks to the friendship I have with Juan Reynoso and the seriousness of Universitario officials,'' Solano told El Bocon newspaper.

''I like ambitious, serious projects and Universitario are heading that way. I am also excited about playing in the Copa Libertadores this year and because I know Juan (Reynoso) very well and I know he will be good for the club.''

Solano, who spent three seasons with Universitario's arch-rivals Sporting Cristal from 1994 to 1997, has signed a two-year contract that he expects will take him to the end of his playing career.

''My idea is to play two years for Universitario, win the local league and do a good job in the Copa Libertadores,'' he said. ''Then, I will probably retire by playing at the Estadio Monumental (Universitario's home stadium).

''Then I will study to be a coach, probably in Argentina.''
