Bolivia striker Moreno joins Flamengo

Rio de Janeiro, May 1 (IANS) Bolivia international striker Marcelo Moreno has agreed to join Flamengo on a season-long loan deal from Brazilian top-flight rivals Gremio.

The 25-year-old former Wigan Athletic forward has not played for the Porto Alegre club since Feb 24 due to a rift with coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo, reports Xinhua.

Flamengo football director Paulo Pelaipe said Flamengo will have the option of buying Moreno until October.

“He is an important player that fits in with our economic reality,” Pelaipe told local media Tuesday.

Moreno scored 22 goals for Gremio last season and is expected to become the Rio de Janeiro club’s first-choice striker ahead of Hernanes.
