Marvin Angulo Borbón (born 30 September 1986) is a Costa Rican professional footballer. He currently plays for Deportivo Saprissa.

Club career[edit]

On 1 October 2009 it was thought he will join the Melbourne Victory from CS Herediano as an injury replacement player for Billy Celeski. The deal was agreed in principle on 21 September 2009.[1] However he was yet to gain clearance from FIFA, and was unable to take the field for Melbourne Victory until the 10 January 2010 fixture against the Newcastle Jets.

He was released by Melbourne Victory during the 10/11 off-season and returned to Herediano, despite rumours of Melbourne wanting to extend his loan.[2]

International career[edit]

Angulo has made two appearances for the Costa Rica national football team, his debut coming in a friendly against Peru on 22 August 2007.[3] In January 2008 he played his second and final international against Sweden.

Transfer Rumors[edit]

Angulo has been linked to a transfer from this current club Saprissa to the Major League Soccer team Portland Timbers [4]
