OFFICIAL: Sirigu Signs With Osasuna
- Updated: January 31, 2017
The 30 year old Italian goalkeeper has reached an agreement to join La Liga side Osasuna on loan for the rest of the 2016/2017 season.
After being loaned to Sevilla from PSG for the entirety of the season, Sirigu found playing time difficult to come by under coach Jorge Sampaoli.
After links to Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, the former Italian international will stay in Spain and join a club who sits on 10 points in La Liga. A shocking move to say the least, this loan presents a challenge to Sirigu. However, this presents Sirigu with the opportunity to receive regular first team football which he has been deprived of for some time.
Sirigu first burst onto the scene with Palermo early on in his career and after two brilliant seasons as the teams number one he was purchased by Paris-Saint Germain. In his seasons as starter, he obtained four Ligue 1 titles and also won goalkeeper of the year twice. In addition he was included on Italy’s roster for both World Cup 2014 and Euro 2016. At 30 years old Sirigu has plenty of years left in him and is definitely a much needed acquisition for a club struggling in the table.
