You may have wondered what happened to several of the players who left Sporting in the summer (or maybe not, there were few great ones). Khalid Boulahrouz has though made his move to Danish football to join Brøndby IF. The deal had been on the cards for a long time but his 1 year contract has only recently been finalised. It’s hard to believe this is a man who Jaap Stam once thought of as his successor.
For those wondering Valeri Bojinov there are mixed reports, some say he has joined Budapest Honvéd whilst other sources declare he is still a free agent. He was most recently seen saving a man’s life.
Elsewhere Oguchi Onyewu is still without a club. Although recently he has been linked with a possible move to Valencia after centre-back Adil Rami got himself into hot water with his comments about the club and could be forced out.
Hugo Ventura, who had a brief spell on loan from Porto, is also a free agent.
