Report: Union Sign Serbian Striker Veljko Paunovic

Veljko Paunovic has been signed by the Philadelphia Union, according to the website The Mata-dor Confidential.

The 33-year-old Serbian striker was on trial with the Union last week, when he played with the Union's reserve team. Paunovic did not particularly impress onlookers at the Reserve League game against DC United, though his play wasn't poor.

With the Union possibly missing starting forward Carlos Ruiz for multiple games because of the upcoming Gold Cup,  the Union apparently feel the need to add another veteran to the mix - despite already having Sebastien Le Toux, Danny Mwanga, Jack McInerney and Chris Agorsor on the team's roster.

From the Brotherly Game's original report on Paunovic:

Paunovic last played in 2008 for UD Almeria of the Spanish La Liga and Serbian SuperLiga club Partizan, where he began his professional career in 1994. He officially retired from soccer after the 2008 season, in which Paunovic managed three goals in 16 games. For his career Paunovic has scored 73 goals in 338 games for 14 different teams, most notably Atletico Madrid. His international career with Serbia spanned only two games, in which Paunovic scored a goal.
