Catania coach Sinisa Mihajlovic admits he's thrilled with the capture of former FC Moscow striker Maxi Lopez.

Lopez was a member of the Barcelona squad that won the Champions League in 2006.

Mihajlovic said: "I am very happy with Maxi's arrival. He is a player that we need, but he still isn't ready.

"Maxi is a very good footballer and a very open person. If Pavone also arrives from Real Betis then I will have an embarrassment of riches up front.

"I am always happy to train good players. Anyway I consider myself satisfied with the squad that I have available to me."
