Brescia president Luigi Corioni has confirmed he hopes to sign a big name to celebrate their return to Serie A.

The likes of Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola and Roberto Baggio have played for Brescia in the past.

Yesterday, Corioni was linked with former Inter Milan star Alvaro Recoba, but he told TMW: "This is fantasy. I do not even know if Recoba plays football. I do not care.

"In the past came the likes of Guardiola and Baggio, but they were real players.

"We could bring another Guardiola. Another Baggio? No, he was a one off."
