Victory signs Brazilian midfielder Finkler

Brazilian midfielder Guilherme Finkler has joined A-League club

Melbourne Victory on a two-year deal.

Finkler spent the 2006-07 season at English club Wolverhampton

Wanderers and joins the Victory from lower tier Brazilian club ABC

Futebol Clube.

New Victory coach Ange Postecoglou thinks Finkler will bring

flair to the team, saying ”Brazilian players have certain

qualities that not many other players possess so I’m confident he

can bring a different type of flair to the group.”

Finkler, who is expected to arrive at Melbourne early next

month, follows the Victory’s signing earlier this week of Mauritius

defensive midfielder Jonathan Bru. Postecoglou has recently joined

the Victory after guiding Brisbane Roar to back-to-back A-League

titles.
