Garcia, 37, a UEFA Champions League winner with Liverpool, recently played in Australia as a part of the Liverpool Legends match and will boost the struggling Mariners outfit.

“I am delighted to be joining a club like the Central Coast Mariners,” Garcia said in a statement.

“This is an exciting challenge for me to play in the A-League and with such a progressive club like the Mariners.

“One of the things that attracted me to the club was the opportunity to share my experience with a young playing group.

“I am also looking forward to playing football in one of the most beautiful places in the world.”
