Brescia boosted by Almeyda

Serie A club Brescia Calcio have signed the Argentinian midfield player Matías Almeyda on a free transfer.
Brescia Calcio have signed Argentinian midfield player Matías Almeyda on a free transfer. The 30-year-old has agreed a one-year contract with the Serie A club.

Brief homecoming
Almeyda left FC Internazionale in June when his contract with the Nerazzurri expired. The former CA River Plate player returned home to join CA Independiente but left the Buenos Aires club for personal reasons without making his debut. He has now moved back to Italy where he previously played for S.S. Lazio, winning the title in 2000, and Parma FC. He follows former Inter defender Daniele Adani, another free-transfer signing, to Brescia.
