Flores bids Adios to Adelaide

Last season's Johnny Warren medalist (Player of the year) Marcos Flores has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with Chinese club Henan Jianye. The Argentine player will earn triple what Adelaide United were offering in his new contract at around $800 000 a season. Flores lit up the A-League in his one and only season with that South American flair football fans know and love. Whether it was freakish passes or scoring superb goals Flores was a genuine star and at times last season, kept Adelaide out of trouble. It is also fair to say that Flores is one of only a handful of overseas players to challenge Melbourne Victory star Carlos Hernandez to being the most successful import player.

A-League fans will be quite aware of his ability, but for others out there who may not of heard of the lad let me show you some of his brilliance. Here is the highlights of a brilliant season:

Impressed? I thought so. Here are his two best goals from last season in isolation:

Not bad huh? Both goals would have many strikers world-wide jealous. Flores will be sorely missed by not only the red army of Adelaide, but the league as a whole. He was a top class player and an absolute pleasure to watch. Muchas gracias Marcos Flores.
