Benevento president Vigorito hails Sagna coup: Marseille, Malaga also wanted him

Benevento president Oreste Vigorito is delighted with their deal for Bacary Sagna.

The former Manchester City and Arsenal fullback has joined the Serie A minnows as a free agent. Vigorito regards the deal as a coup.

He told TMW: "I liked the fact that Sagna came here, while other clubs much more prestigious than ours were looking for him.

"Sagna was negotiating this winter with Olympique de Marseille, but also Olympiakos and Malaga."

The former France international has signed with Benevento to the end of this season.
