Matias Fernandez - Villarreal Unveil Matias Fernandez to Fans

Colo-Colo-jersey.jpgVillarreal unveiled their new signing Matias Fernandez on Thursday.

The 20-year-old helped Chilean-side Colo Colo to the Copa Sudamericana Finals by scoring nine goals in the tournament that ended earlier this month.

During his time at Colo Colo, the attacking midfielder scored 33 goals in 63 games.

He is a free kick specialist, possesses incredible skills on the ball, and was named South American Footballer of the Year for 2006.

Fernandez's passing was key in freeing strikers Humberto Suazo and Alexis Sanchez as Colo Colo were Copa Sudamericana runners-up.

Last Saturday, in his final match for Colo Colo, Fernandez hoisted the Chilean Clausura trophy as the "Cacique" defeated Audax Italiano 6-2 on aggregate.

Villarreal are 11th, 15 points off the pace of leaders Sevilla, but only six points off the last Champions League spot.
