RailHawks sign La Liga veteran Romero

The Carolina RailHawks announced the signing of La Liga veteran and Uruguayan international midfielder Marcelo Romero pending league/USSF approvals and international clearance.

Romero will make his debut in orange at the "Community Shield" on Saturday March 14, when the RailHawks host the New England Revolution.

"I am extremely happy to begin a new adventure in the United States," said midfielder Marcelo Romero. "This is a market with great potential and I am excited to see this franchise grow and have an impact on the local community. I am hungry to have success here; we need to match these brilliant facilities with the team on the field."

"It is great for the Carolina RailHawks to have signed a player that has the standing in the game that Marcelo Romero has," said RailHawks coach Martin Rennie. "Most players can only dream of playing in a top European league and representing their country in the World Cup, but Marcelo has done this and more.

"He has developed his skills against some of the best known players in the world and has worked under some fantastic coaches. It is important for us to have some experienced players in our squad and Marcelo certainly brings that."

Marcelo Romero Silva was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1976 and began his career at the age of 18 with Defensor of Montevideo in Uruguay's First Division. He then transferred to Peñarol in 1996 where he helped the team win three Uruguayan national titles and participated in three Copa Libertadores, the equivalent of the UEFA Champions League.

In 2001 Marcelo transferred to Malaga of Spain's La Liga Primera Division where he starred as a defensive midfielder. At Malaga he played in 130 matches scoring five goals and helped the team reach the quarterfinals of the 2003-2004 UEFA Cup.

Romero also made his debut with the Uruguayan national team in 1995 and participated in the 2002 World Cup. After seven years at Malaga, Romero transferred to Andalusian club Lucena CF.
