BERLIN - VfB Stuttgart have parted ways
with Italian midfielder Mauro Camoranesi after only six months
following disappointing performances by the World Cup winner.
The Bundesliga club said on Wednesday the player's contract
that ran until the end of the season had been dissolved.
Camoranesi joined last summer from Juventus but failed to
make any impact and Stuttgart are struggling in 17th place just
three points above bottom side Borussia Moenchengladbach.
"That is football," said Camoranesi who helped Italy win the
World Cup in 2006. "Sometimes things happen which you cannot
predict. Unfortunately it did not work out on a sporting level
but I felt here very much at home," he said.
The Argentine-born 34-year-old fetured in only seven league
games this season and was sent off once.
