BUENOS AIRES - Argentine-born former Italy
and Juventus winger Mauro Camoranesi has joined Lanus in the
local first division, the club said on Wednesday.
Camoranesi, who has dual nationality and helped Italy win
the 2006 World Cup, had been released by VfB Stuttgart last
week. He won more than 50 caps.
Lanus, coached by former Deportivo Coruna, Real Socieded and
Argentina defender Gabriel Schurrer, said on their website that Camoranesi, 34, would be officially
unveiled on Thursday.
Camoranesi came home to Argentina looking to play in the
first division after travels that took him to Mexico and Uruguay
before he joined Verona in 2000. He moved to Juve two years
later and stayed until 2010.
Lanus, from the southern suburbs of Buenos Aires, have won
one Argentine league title, the Apertura in 2007. They were
seventh in this season's Apertura in December.
