    GUATEMALA CITY – Municipal announced Monday the signing of forward Maximiliano Callorda.  The 24-year-old Uruguayan is the fourth foreign player on the Rojos’ books, joining compatriots Santiago Morandi and Diego de Souza, plus Salvadoran Kevin Santamaria.

    He played most recently with Fenix in Uruguay, scoring three goals in 11 appearances last season.

    With Municipal participating in the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL), Callorda’s 2012 and 2013 Copa Liberatdores experience, while as a member of Defensor Sporting, is expected to be valuable.

    In the continental club competition, the 29-time Guatemalan champion will face Mexico’s Pachuca and Real España of Honduras in Group 1 play.
