The Wellington Phoenix and Carlos Hernandez have parted company by mutual consent.
Phoenix general manager David Dome confirmed today that the club had agreed to release the Costa Rican international, who had a year to run on his contract, and wished him luck in his future ventures.
“Carlos- family have found it difficult to settle in Wellington,” Dome said.
“It is tough for a player when that is the case and the club agreed to his request for a release.
“We congratulate Carlos on his selection to the Costa Rican team for the World Cup and believe his performances for the Phoenix played a part in that.
“The club wishes Carlos all the best for Brazil and in the future.”
