Although the deal was looking certain earlier this week, everything is now official. Peruvian youngster, André Carrillo has officially joined Sporting Clube de Portugal and will begin training with the Sporting first team after he returns from Peru, where he is set to play a final 4 games for Alianza Lima.
“I am very happy with the choice made and I will work to earn my place and space in the first team,” said Carrillo during his unveiling Estádio José Alvalade yesterday. “Sporting for me is not a trampoline. It is the right club for me. “
Sporting’s Director of Football, Carlos Freitas also said that this would be a new breed of Leões players for the future. “Carrillo is a player that fits in a new Sporting bet, where you will add two, three more players like Carrillo,”
