D.C. United Re-Sign Luciano Emilio

The Brazilian forward will rejoin the Eastern Conference club.
D.C. United have announed that they have re-signed forward Luciano Emilio to a short-term contract.

“We welcome Luciano back to D.C. United,” said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper in a press release. “Over the past several months, we’ve been in constant communication with Luciano regarding his playing future and have reached an agreement that provides United a proven MLS goal-scorer at terms that take into consideration both parties’ plans for the future.”

Spending three years with the club from 2007-2009, Emilio won the 2007 MLS MVP and Godlen Boot Awards.

He left the club earlier this year to go and play with Brazlian club Rio Branco, but has decided to return to the nation's capital to help the struggling team.
