Chilean skipper pens Alvalade deal
Champions League winner Marco Oneto agrees contract until the end of the season
Sporting CP has officially signed the Chilean captain Marco Oneto. With more than 80 international caps under his belt, Oneto was also crucial in his country's run to a 3rd place finish in the Pan American Games.
The 34-year old is an imposing figure, standing 2.04m tall and weighing in at 112 kilos. He has enjoyed a brilliant career in Spain, winning the Copa del Rey twice, along with a Spanish Supercup and a National Championship. He was also part of the FC Barcelona team that won the 2011 Champions League.
Reflecting on the deal, Oneto proved happy with the move to the Portuguese capital: "Sporting CP is a globally recognised name. It is one of the bet clubs in Europe and fights for the title. This is a great opportunity and I want to build on the expectations that people have. I know a lot about the Portuguese League already and I know it is really competitive, which is good for my career. I am really looking forward to getting down to work."
