Rogério signs for Sporting

Sporting Clube de Portugal have signed Brazilian midfield player Rogério from SC Corinthians Paulista.

Sporting Clube de Portugal have completed the signing of versatile Brazilian midfield player Rogério from SC Corinthians Paulista.

Eight titles
The 28-year-old has won the Brazilian championship eight times - four apiece with Corinthians and former club SE Palmeiras. He has agreed a three-year deal with the Lisbon side, who earlier this month appointed José Peseiro as coach.

Versatile performer
Rogério said: "My goal is to win trophies. Throughout my career I have won trophies and I want to repeat that with Sporting. I can play as a right-winger or in central midfield or behind the forwards. It will depend on a conversation that I will have with the new coach." Sporting begin their UEFA Cup campaign in the first round.
