Official: Olympiakos Sign Diogo

Olympiakos have officially confirmed the capture of 21-year-old Brazilian starlet Diogo Luis Santo from Portuguesa, with the striker signing a five year deal with the Greek champions. Diogo arrived in Athens earlier this week to complete his long-awaited move, which has been one of the most talked about summer transfer sagas on the Greek domestic scene.

An official statement on the club’s website confirmed the signing: “Olympiakos announces the completion of the signing of Brazilian striker Diogo Luis Santo, who has signed a five year contract with the club.”

The arrival of Diogo will be a welcome boost for Olympiakos manager Ernesto Valverde, who has experienced a fairly slow summer recruitment drive, particularly in contrast to that of previous incumbent Panagiotis Lemonis last season.

Whether Diogo’s fitness levels are high enough to warrant consideration for selection in Olympiakos’ squad for the ucopming second-leg of their UEFA Champions League Qualifier against Anorthosis Famagusta is a different story altogether and some within the football sphere might see Diogo’s capture as an attempt to claw back qualification for the lucrative group stages.

Anorthosis head to the Karaiskaki Stadium holding a 3-0 lead after stunning their illustrious Greek opponents in Cyprus last week, though Temuri Ketsbaia’s side will be expecting a football backlash when they arrive in Piraeus on the 27th.
