RIJKAARD AT SPORTING HELM
Frank Rijkaard has made a sensational return to football after agreeing to manage Sporting Lisbon.
President Bruno de Carvalho struck a deal with the Dutchman who signs a 1 year deal and takes over the falling giants.
Rijkaard’s first task will be to keep hold of vital players such as Diego Capel who’s linked with rival Porto as the Lisbon club aim to start their road to recovery.
Rijkaard is no stranger to Sporting having signed for them as a player from Ajax in 1987, only to not be registered in time and then loaned out to Zaragoza.
Rijkaard left the following season and was reportedly close to becoming Sporting manager back in 2011 before Domingos Paciencia’s appointment.
