    Rodriguez rejoins Alajuelense

    ALAJUELA, Costa Rica - Costa Rica's Alajuelense announced Thursday that midfielder Ariel Rodriguez will return to the club for the 2013 Torneo Invierno after spending nearly three years with Perez Zeledon.

    Rodriguez made his first division debut in the 2008 Torneo Invierno with Alajuelense, earning a second-place finish that season.  He joined Santos de Guapiles in 2009, before moving on to Perez Zeledon in 2010.

    The 27-year-old has been called up regularly to the national team, appearing in all five matches as Costa Rica captured the 2013 UNCAF Copa Centroamerican title. He has also played in all three of the Ticos' encounters in the Hexagonal round of World Cup Qualifying for Brazil 2014.

    By virtue of winning the 2012 Torneo Invierno, Alajuelense will be playing in the CONCACAF Champions League for the fourth time during the 2013/14 edition of the competition. The Manudos finished fifth in the 2013 Torneo Verano, just a single point behind Perez Zeledon.
