Adelaide poach Caravella from Gold Coast

January 12, 2011

Adelaide United have signed midfielder Zenon Caravella from A-League rivals Gold Coast United.

The attacking midfielder will join Adelaide on a two-year deal at the end of the current season.

"Zenon is a good player and we're happy that he will join us," Adelaide coach Rini Coolen said on Thursday.

Caravella played in the inaugural A-League season with the now defunct New Zealand Knights before spending two seasons with Dutch club FC Ominworld, where Coolen first saw him in action.

The 27-year-old Queenslander then returned to Australia where he joined Gold Coast.
