Racing Sign Boca Reject Castroman

Racing Club have confirmed the signing of out of favour Boca Juniors striker Lucas Castroman...
Lucas Castroman came to an agreement with Racing Club on Thursday night, and on Friday he will join the rest of the squad in preparations for the Argentine Clausura Championship.

The former Velez Sarsfield, Boca Juniors, Lazio, Udinese, and Club America striker was Racing's third incorporation of the year. The other two players were Juan Carlos Falcon and Nicolas Vigneri.

On Thursday night Rodolfo Molina, the president of Racing, confirmed to Telam that Castroman was signed by the club and that he will begin training with his new teammates on Friday.

After hours of negotiations Castroman penned a two-year deal with the Avellaneda giants.

Castroman, 28, found greatest success during his second stint with Velez Sarsfield between 2004-07. In 2005 he guided the Buenos Aires outfit to the Argentine Clausura Championship.

Since then he hasn't been able to find his top form, and that is much of the reason why he hasn't been recalled to the Argentine national team.

After highly frustrating stints at Boca and America, Castroman is hoping to return to old ways at Racing.
