So, it’s yet another international break so it’s time to see how some of the Sporting players are fairing away from the club.
Zezinho: Veria FC are currently rock bottom of the Greek Superleague but at the very least Zezinho is getting some first-team competitive football. Zezinho has so far made 4 appearances for Veria although his last appearance was in a 6-0 loss.
Valentín Viola: Valentín Viola maybe back at the club he has been a life-long fan of but on-field things aren’t quite so fantastic. Viola has played 8 games on his return to Argentina and has been on the losing side in every single one. The club is in terrible form having not won a game since June and have lost 10 of their last 12.
Diego Rubio: Diego Rubio has been getting some first team football in Romania with Pandurii but has yet to find the net for his new side.
Elias: Elias’ form has improved since his return to Brazil and the Brazilian club are allegedly waiting out the dispute between Elias and Sporting before deciding how to proceed in signing the midfielder permanently.
Miguel Lopes: After joining Lyon due to the defender’s high wage demands, Miguel Lopes has played 8 games with the club before a hamstring injury put him out of action in September.
Renato Neto: The Brazilian midfielder has played 9 times since returning to Gent for his second spell with the club.
Gaël Etock: After 9 games with Cercle Brugge the Cameroonian forward has scored twice and seems to be benefiting from his stay with Sporting’s feeder club.
Victor Golas and William Owusu: Both players were reported to have joined Corona Braşov on loan but neither has even made a squad appearance yet. If anyone has any more information into this deal then do please get in touch.
