Sporting Kansas City has confirmed the departure of Omar Bravo to Mexican club Cruz Azul.

The 31-year old has returned to his homeland following one-and-a-half-years with SKC after spending the majority of the past decade in the Mexican Primera Division with the likes of Chivas Guadalajara and UANL as well as a short spell with Spanish outfit Deportivo la Coruna.

"We want to thank Omar (Bravo) for his time with Sporting Kansas City on and off the field," head coach Peter Vermes said.

"His competitive nature and savviness played a big part in our first season at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. We wish him nothing but success in his new ventures."

Bravo, who scored nine goals in 27 MLS appearances, has indicated that his days in the North American domestic competition are not necessarily over.

"I want to thank Peter (Vermes), the Sporting Kansas City ownership, and MLS for a great opportunity and experience during the memorable 2011 season," Bravo said. "For personal reasons, I am returning to the Primera Division but I do not want to rule out a return to Sporting KC and MLS.”

The move will make available an international roster spot and a Designated Players position on the Sporting Kansas City roster.
