South signs Javier Díaz López for 2022 season

South Melbourne FC would like to announce the signing of Spanish Goalkeeper Javier Díaz López for the 2022 NPL Victoria season.

He joins us from Bentleigh Greens and will be added to the squad for selection in the upcoming game on the 12th of November against A League Champions, Melbourne City.

A fantastic shot stopper and a composed player while on the ball, López adds experience to our squad as well as linking back up with former teammates Marco Jankovic and Joshua Wallen. South fans would remember López as man-of-the-match performance between the sticks in our encounter this season.

Speaking to smfc.com.au, Football Director Andrew Mesourouni welcomed López to the club. “We are excited to bring a player of Javier’s quality into our squad and look forward for him to link up with the team immediately. He is an experienced player having played a large part of his career in Europe and quality individual.”

We welcome Javier to SMFC and look forward to seeing him immediately at training
