LIMA, March 23 (Xinhua) — Former PSV Eindhoven, Schalke, and Lokomotiv Moscow forward Jefferson Farfan has returned to his original club Alianza Lima on a two-year contract, the Peruvian top-flight side said on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old, who has not played since parting ways with Lokomotiv last July, said he intended to retire at the club where his career began in 2001.
“My family motivated me to return to the team I love,” Farfan told a news conference on Tuesday.
“I want to give something back to Alianza for everything they’ve done for me. I am a staunch Alianza fan and I want to do my best. I know that I can help take Alianza Lima where they deserve to be.”
Farfan, who has been capped 98 times and scored 27 goals for Peru’s national team, expressed a desire to play in this year’s Copa America and the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Enditem
