Sporting Lisbon striker
Valeri Bojinov, who angered fans in a controversy over a
penalty, has rejoined Serie A club Lecce on loan until the end
of the season, the Bulgaria international said on Tuesday.
Bojinov, who turns 26 next month, incurred the wrath of
Sporting fans when he shoved aside his team's usual
penalty-taker and insisted on taking the injury-time shot
himself, only to see it saved, in a cup game with lower-tier
Moreirense on January 19.
The Bulgarian made his debut in Serie A, playing for Lecce
at the age of 15 years 11 months in 2002, to become the youngest
foreign player to appear in the Italian top flight.
He was sold to Fiorentina for a fee of some 13 million euros
"Yes, I'm already a Lecce player," Bojinov, who also played
for Juventus, Manchester City and Parma, told local media.
"There's even a possibility of playing against Udinese
