    ALAJUELA, Costa Rica – Alajuelense presented midfielder Osvaldo Rodriguez, the newly crowned Costa Rican champion’s first signing for the 2014 Verano, at a Monday press conference.

    The Costa Rican international joined the Manudos on a three-year contract from Santos de Guapiles. 

    "The group has welcomed me very well,” said Rodriguez.  “For me it's a dream to reach the championship team because the best are here.  I know I have a responsibility to fight for you and fit in and contribute.”

    The last 12 months have seen the 23-year-old rise up the international ranks for Costa Rica.  He won the UNCAF Copa Centroamericana in January, appeared in all four of the Ticos’ matches at the CONCACAF Gold Cup and took the field in a 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Jamaica on March 26.

    Alajuelense, which won its 29th league last month, opens the new season on Sunday at Carmelita and will face Panama’s Arabe Unido in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals in March.
