Melbourne Victory releases Vargas

Melbourne Victory have announced that they have released defender Rodrigo Vargas.

The 33-year old spent six seasons with the Victory, making 140 A-League appearances, and helping the club to two Premiers Plate/Championship doubles.

Vargas, who has made the most appearances for the Victory since the competition began in 2005, said it was an honour to have represented such a strong club.

"It's been a privilege being able to play for the most successful club in the league, in my hometown, in front of my family and friends, for the best fans in the country," he said.

"The two Premiership/Championship doubles won in front of packed out Etihad Stadium's remain highlights of my time at Melbourne Victory."

The club will honour Vargas at the 2011/12 Victory Medal Night and also ensure he is presented to the Melbourne Victory faithful next season to recognise and celebrate his A-League career.
