Jean Carlos Solórzano Madrigal (born 8 January 1988) is a Costa Rican footballer forward who plays for Brisbane Roar in the Australian A-League.

Club career[edit]

He made his official debut with the Alajuelense first team during the 2005–06 season, on 14 December, against Santacruceña, with only 17 years, and played 29 minutes for his team. He was the top scorer for his team in the 2006–07 season, scoring eight goals in 17 games.[1]

Brisbane Roar[edit]

It was announced that he had signed with Australian A-League club Brisbane Roar on-loan for a year from Alajuelense.[2] Solorzano impressed at Brisbane, scoring 11 goals.[3] Solorzano went on to win the 2011 A-League Grand Final in stunning fashion against Central Coast Mariners. Solorzano stated that he wanted to stay at the Roar.[4]

Melbourne Victory[edit]

It was announced on 28 March 2011 that Melbourne Victory signed Solorzano from Brisbane Roar, with Alajuelense extending his loan deal for one more season so that the move could take place. Solorzano failed to make an impact at Melbourne due to limited game-time, and returned to Costa Rica at the end of the season.


Solórzano signed with Puntarenas in June 2013.[5]

Return to Brisbane Roar[edit]

On 29 January 2014 Solórzano re-signed with the club that he won Premiership and Championship medals with in 2010–11.[6] He has initially signed on until the end of the 2013–14 season following a successful week-long trial.[7]

International career[edit]

Solórzano has represented Costa Rica at U-17 level, was part of the Costa Rican 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship squad as well as the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup squad.[8]

He made his senior debut for Costa Rica in an April 2012 friendly match against Honduras, coming on as a substitute for Olman Vargas.
