Signori coup for Sopron

Hungarian side FC Sopron have signed former Italian international striker Giuseppe Signori until the end of the season.

FC Sopron have created a major stir in Hungarian football by signing former Italian international striker Giuseppe Signori until the end of the season.

Out of contract
The 37-year-old, who had been a free agent since leaving Greek side Iraklis FC in the summer, has agreed to spend the remainder of the campaign with the Hungarian First Division's third-from-bottom team. Sopron have won only one of their eight league games.

Surprise moves
Signori made his name in Italy with spells at Foggia Calcio, S.S. Lazio, UC Sampdoria and Bologna FC, scoring 188 Serie A goals. He announced his retirement from Italian football in 2004, citing "mental and physical pressures", but surprised many by moving on from Bologna to play for Iraklis, Qatari club Al Arabi and now Sopron.
