LISBON - Spanish defender Joan Capdevila
has agreed to join Benfica on a two-year contract for an
undisclosed fee from Villarreal, the Portuguese club said on
their website on Thursday.
The left-back had a contract with Villarreal that ran until
Capdevila, 33, earned the first of his 57 caps for Spain in
2002 and was a key member of the team that won Euro 2008 and the
2010 World Cup in South Africa.
He had short spells at Espanyol and Atletico Madrid early in
his career before joining Deportivo La Coruna and moved to
Villarreal in 2007.
A reliable and experienced left-back who likes to get
forward and is an effective crosser, Capdevila is expected to
replace Fabio Coentrao in the Benfica team following the
