"I am really happy to be back"
Pedro Delgado returns to Alvalade after spell in Italy
Pedro Delgado sealed a return to Alvalade this weekend after representing Inter Milan. With fierce competition in the Sporting midfield, the 19-year old midfielder proved fully aware that he will have to work his way up through the club's B team.
"I am really happy to be back. When I heard the club was interested, I didn't hesitate. I am a Sporting fan and I want to make the fans happy. The last three years were really important for me and I gained a lot of experience, especially with the tactical side of Italian football. I know I can help Sporting. First with the B team, but I am focused on the senior squad", said Delgado after putting pen to paper.
Delgado moved to Sporting in 2010/2011 aged just 13, moving from Portimonense. In 2012/13 he returned to Portimonense, before moving directly to Milan.
