Ex-Barça: Rochemback to Sporting

Middlesbrough midfielder and former Barcelona player Fábio Rochemback (26) will return to Portuguese top club Sporting after signing a three-year deal. In 2005, Rochemback left Sporting to join Middlesbrough, who now have rejected the chance to take up a two-year option they had on the midfielder.

Rochemback said in an interview with the official club media that he feels really happy about the transfer: "It was a good deal for all parties. It's very important to arrive at a place where you feel loved, where you know everybody. For me it feels like I'm coming home. I signed for three years, after that we'll see."

Arriving in the summer 2001 from Brazilian club Internacional for 15 million euro°, Fábio Rochemback played two seasons for Barcelona. In 2003 he was included in the transfer of Sporting winger Ricardo Quaresma and moved to Portugal.
