Cagliari is interested in Paolo Montero..

EL ZAGUERO NO ES TENIDO EN CUENTA POR LA JUVENTUS
Cagliari está interesado en Paolo Montero


El club Cagliari, que siempre tuvo en sus filas a jugadores uruguayos, expresó fuerte interés en fichar al zaguero de Juventus Paolo Montero, antes del cierre del libro de pases esta semana. La versión de contactos entre los dos clubes fue confirmada ayer por fuentes del Cagliari, cuyo presidente Massimo Cellino comunicó al director general de Juventus, Luciano Moggi, su disponibilidad a recibir a Montero en préstamo hasta junio de 2005.

La oferta incluye, según el trascendido, una "razonable" disminución del salario actual de Montero (3.500.000 euros por temporada) pero con el ofrecimiento de un contrato por un año más desde junio de 2006, cuando quede libre de Juventus, si su rendimiento en Cagliari es satisfactorio.

Actualmente, el veterano internacional uruguayo, de 33 años, no encuentra espacio en el primer equipo turinés: tras quedar fuera de los campos por una lesión, regresó el 6 de enero contra Parma (1-1), su único partido en la actual Liga Italiana, pero su desafortunada actuación hizo que no volviese a ser convocado. En el plantel de Cagliari figuran los uruguayos Diego López, Nelson Abeijón (ambos confirmados como titulares inamovibles) y Horacio Peralta, quien seguirá probablemente su carrera en Nacional de Montevideo.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The article basically says that Cagliari are interested in Montero and are hoping to seal his signing before the transfer window closes..
The article also talks about how Cagliari always inlcude Uruguay players in their squad with Peralta,Lopez, and Abeijon playing there currently..
Cagliari are suppose to make a loan offer until the end of season paying a good amount of his 3.5 sallary..

I really hope this goes through Montero would be a huge boost for Cagliari, him and Lopez would partner great together and i think that playing with a smaller club like Cagliari will take take pressure off of him and he would play much better to lead Cagliari..

Well they have the second best tridente in Italy... Langella, Esposito and Zola... especially when they are at home.

They eventually won by that scoreline and it seems the team from Sardinia will indeed be in the Semis of the Coppa Italia against probably Inter. Samp need to play very well to comeback, especially with Cagliari's ability to score.

Siena - Cagliari

Stadio Franchi

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With Paolo Negro and Nicola Legrottaglie making their debuts in defence Siena will be hoping they can break down Cagliari’s attacking style. Tomas Locatelli will be vital to their counter-attacks and their chances this season will depend heavily on his ability to link front man Enrico Chiesa with the rest of the side. Another important player for the Tuscan outfit will be rookie ‘keeper Antonio Mirante, who will have to learn fast as he faces Italian internationals Mauro Esposito and Antonio Langella.

With a fully fit squad to choose from Rossoblu Coach Attilio Tesser has chosen to stick with last season’s 4-3-3 formation, meaning there is no room in midfield for new signings Alessandro Budel and Alessandro Conticchio. They will also be looking for their new goalkeeper, Andrea Campagnolo, to make a good start, although he is likely to have a quieter afternoon than his opposite number. The only other debutant for Cagliari will be young defender Michele Canini, and neither him nor Campagnolo has played in Serie A before.

The Sardinian side will go into the game as favourites but Siena could well snatch a victory if their new signings can click from the start. If their defence can soak up the inevitable Cagliari onslaught and Locatelli can get the ball to Chiesa quickly enough on the break, then they could just show Serie A that they mean business this season.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Siena (probable): Mirante; Negro, Legrottaglie, Mignani; Alberto, Vergassola, D’Aversa, Falsini; Cozza, Locatelli; Chiesa

Cagliari (probable): Campagnolo; Lopez, Bega, Canini, Agostini; Abeijon, Conti, Gobbi; Esposito, Suazo, Langella

Carini handed Cagliari gloves Thursday 25 August, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cagliari, as widely expected, have signed goalkeeper Fabian Carini from Internazionale on a one-year loan.

The Sardinian club confirmed his capture this evening after the player’s agent, Paco Casal, agreed terms with both sides earlier today.

The Uruguayan started his career with Danubio in his homeland and was handed his international debut as a 20-year-old.

Carini, now 26, moved to Italy in January 2001 when he was signed by Juventus, but subsequently failed to break into the side.

He spent two seasons on loan at Standard Liege in Belgium, before moving to Inter last summer as part of the deal that saw Fabio Cannavaro go in the other direction.

However, space was again limited given the presence of Francesco Toldo at the San Siro.

He’s opted to move on after the Italian giants also signed Brazilian international Julio Cesar from Chievo Verona this summer.

Genoa accepts Cagliari bid but Milito wants Inter Milan
tribalfootball.com - August 27, 2005

Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has accepted a bid from Cagliari for striker Diego Milito.

Cagliari's offer of £2.4 million for 50 per cent of Milito's registration was accepted by Preziosi on Thursday, but the Argentine is refusing to move to the Serie A club.

Milito knows Preziosi also has offers on the table from Inter and Spain's Real Zaragoza and favours either option over Cagliari.

Inter's offer is for £2 million for 50 per cent of Milito's registration, plus the loan of two young players. Nigerian striker Isaiah Eliakwu and defender Nicolas Giani have been mentioned as possible makeweights.

Siena 2 - 1 Cagliari
Esposito 10 (C), Chiesa pen 44, 58 (S)
Stadio Franchi

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enrico Chiesa bagged a brace to earn Siena an important opening win and confirm Cagliari's poor away form from last season has not improved.

Cagliari faced up to life after Gianfranco Zola and nobody has been given his Number 10 jersey, though former Inter goalkeeper Fabian Carini made his debut. Antonio Langella was out injured, while Siena couldn't yet count on new signing Massimo Marazzina.

Roberto D'Aversa required a tough early challenge to snuff out the danger from David Suazo, but Cagliari eventually took the lead after 10 minutes of play.

Italian international Mauro Esposito sprinted through the centre and beat Nicola Legrottaglie for pace before placing his shot past goalkeeper Mirante.

Siena fought back with D'Aversa's long-range effort whistling wide, then Enrico Chiesa was very unlucky to see his delightful chip strike the crossbar.

The Tuscans were able to draw level on the stroke of half-time. Legrottaglie's pass sent Chiesa running and he was brought down by Agostini, so the veteran stepped up to convert the penalty himself.

Nelson Abeijon flicked the ball on and Massimo Gobbi blasted it over the target. It was to prove a costly error, as Siena turned the game around completely.

Chiesa was again the hero, although goalkeeper Fabian Carini did not exactly impress in this situation on his Cagliari debut. The Uruguayan goalkeeper allowed a harmless shot from distance to squirm through his hands.

Siena ended the match in 10 men following D'Aversa's red card for striking an opponent, but Carini was still forced to make a save on Gianluca Falsini.

However, Esposito had the chance to earn Cagliari a point in stoppages and Nicola Portanova's goalline clearance proved decisive.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Siena: Mirante; Negro, Legrottaglie, Mignani (Falsini 52), Portanova; Paro 51 (Alberto 51), D'Aversa, Vergassola; Cozza (Gastaldello 79); Bogdani, Chiesa

Cagliari: Carini; Canini, Lopez, Bega, Agostini; Abeijon (Capone 61), Conti, Gobbi (Budel 70); Esposito, Suazo, Cossu (Ferrarese 70)

Ref: Brighi

Sent off: D'Aversa 76 (S)

Tesser axed by Cagliari Monday 29 August, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cagliari have sacked boss Attilio Tesser just hours after the tactician took charge of his first Serie A game.

The Sardinian club have surprisingly opted to axe the Coach following the 2-1 reverse at Siena on Sunday.

Tesser, 47, was only appointed at the Sant’Elia in the summer, following some good results in Serie B with Triestina.

He was brought in to replace the departing Daniele Arrigoni, who ironically is now in pole position to get Tesser’s job.

Arrigoni quit at the end of last season for personal reasons, but is set to return following his later resignation at Torino following their financial collapse.

Cagliari, who also went out of the Coppa Italia under Tesser this term, lost at Siena yesterday as a result of a goalkeeping error from Fabian Carini.

Arrigoni 'stunned' by Cagliari comeback Tuesday 30 August, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniele Arrigoni has expressed his pleasant surprise at returning to Cagliari just three months after his bitter departure, replacing sacked boss Attilio Tesser.

“The club decided to replace Tesser now rather than later,” explained director of sport Nicola Salerno following yesterday’s dismissal. “There were some problems within the squad and not everyone was working in the same direction.”

Tesser took charge of the side in the summer after Arrigoni left to be ‘closer to his family.’ The post at Torino fell through when the club was demoted to Serie B as a result of financial difficulties, while the new boss was sacked hours after his first Serie A game, a 2-1 defeat at Siena.

“It’s a shame for Tesser, but he didn’t quite gel with the club. If he’d stayed, then the situation would’ve exploded sooner or later. Obviously, he didn’t take the news well, because had he not sat on the bench for this single game, he could’ve taken another job.”

Under the Italian rules, a Coach cannot work for more than one club per season, so 47-year-old Tesser – who took Treviso to the Serie B play-offs last term – must spend the rest of the year on the sidelines.

Now Arrigoni has flown in to Sardinia to resume the work he had done in the last campaign, having taken them to 12th place in his first Serie A experience.

“I was contacted on Sunday night and it was a complete surprise,” confessed Arrigoni. “It was especially a shock considering what had happened when I left. We spoke again on Monday morning and I told the club I was available.”

President Massimo Cellino had reacted angrily to Arrigoni’s departure, initially refusing to release him from his contract so that he’d miss out on the Torino job.

“My family situation has changed now and I will probably bring everyone with me to Cagliari. To be back here fills me with pride and joy, though I’m not sure how the fans will take it.”

It is the best thing to bring Arrigoni back to Cagliari, because Tesser was going in the wrong direction although the sack was a bit soon..

Cagliari also bought Joe Bizera over the summer who is a Uruguayan center back who is strong in the air and has much experience and has also learned a lot of things from his mentor Paolo Montero :D..
He has a World Cup,2 Copa Americas,a few Libertadores and many championships under his belt..
This is a good capture for the future but dont be surprised if he starts playing soon..

Carini is another great capture because seeing how Inter treat players he will most likely stay at the end of the season, he will bounce back from the blunder he had and turn into one of the best in Italy no doubt about it..

My question is how are Cagliari going to be able to cope without the magic of the little man??
Are they going to do big things this year??
What do you guys think?

New Toro look to Albertini Saturday 3 September, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The new Torino at last has a new owner in Urbano Cairo and must build a squad from scratch with Demetrio Albertini and Antonio Langella on the wish list.

“We will work to create a club that has its place in the present and the future,” noted the local businessman. “Toro have a great history, but we won’t live on memories alone. We’ll invest in youth and Coach Gianni De Biasi.”

Cairo’s takeover ended weeks of confusion and turnarounds following Torino’s bankruptcy and exclusion from the top flight. The club was able to start again in Serie B under the Lodo Petrucci, but just as Cairo was preparing to sign the contracts, Luca Giovannone came out at the last moment with paperwork showing he had an option to buy 51 per cent of the shares.

The matter was finally resolved this week and Torino have until September 9 to finalise their transfer campaign – for which their initial Serie B games were also postponed.

The top name on the wish list is that of 34-year-old Albertini, the former Milan, Atletico Madrid and Brescia midfielder who made five appearances for Barcelona last season and is currently out of contract.

Negotiations are also in place with Lazio to bring in Simone Inzaghi and Roberto Muzzi, while Genoa’s hitman Roberto Stellone is another alternative.

It’s likely that Enrico Fantini will join the Granata on loan from Fiorentina, although there is another possible swoop for a Serie A star.

Langella’s bitter split with Cagliari Coach Daniele Arrigoni has prompted the Italian international to demand a transfer, but with the regular window closed until January, Torino would be his best option.

“I am not in football to make money,” explained Cairo. “There will be losses, especially at the start, but it might not always be like that.”

Langella hands in transfer request Sunday 4 September, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Antonio Langella’s bitter split with Cagliari could force him out of the club and there are only six sides that can sign him outside the transfer window.

The Italian international called a Press Conference earlier this week to denounce Coach Daniele Arrigoni and the club for pushing him out of the side.

He claimed that Arrigoni had told him he wasn’t included in the tactical plans for this season, while he had been “lied to” about the salary cap that prevented higher wages being negotiated when he penned a new contract.

Langella did not take part in yesterday’s training session and it’s reported he was shocked by the force of the fan protest when hundreds of supporters climbed over the fence and hurled insults at Coach Arrigoni and the players.

It’s claimed he has been given 72 hours to work out a solution for his future, but at this stage there are only six sides that can sign him before January.

The clubs that were either demoted or promoted at the last minute due to this summer’s chaotic legal battles have been given an extra week to complete their transfer campaigns.

They are Ascoli and Treviso in Serie A, Torino in the Second Division and Serie C1 outfits Genoa, Perugia and Salernitana.

Although Langella would like to stay in the top flight so that he can aim to be in the 2006 World Cup squad, the most likely destination is Torino.

Serie A Week 2 - 11/9/05 (19.30 UK)
Cagliari – Lazio

Stadio Sant'Elia

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lazio hit the road for the first time this season when they travel across the Tyrrhenian Sea to Sardinia for their meeting with Cagliari. The Biancocelesti put the disappointment of their European exit behind them in Week 1 as they disposed of Messina thanks to a Goran Pandev goal. Delio Rossi’s decision to start with the Macedonian hit man alongside Tommaso Rocchi paid off and the pair look set to remain the first choice in attack.

Cagliari have had a tumultuous start to their new campaign. Their opening day defeat at Siena led to the sacking of Coach Attilio Tesser and the return of Daniele Arrigoni – after his departure to Torino was soured by the Granata’s demotion. The nature of his exit did not endear him to the Rossoblu tifosi so it will be interesting to see what kind of reception he receives in his first game back at the Sant’Elia.

Cagliari will be without the attacking talents Antonio Langella and Andrea Cossu while Uruguayan defender Joe Bizera is also unavailable. For Lazio, Albanian striker Igli Tare will have to wait slightly longer before making his League debut for the club as he and Fabio Liverani are not fit. Midfielder Gaby Mudingayi, a late signing from Torino, is suspended.

Last season it was a 1-1 draw when these sides met on the Island, Mauro Esposito’s goal – his 50th League strike for Cagliari – cancelled out by an injury time leveller from Sebastiano Siviglia. The last four Serie A meetings at the Sant’Elia have ended in draws. It is not since 1993 that Cagliari have scored a home win over their Roman rivals in Serie A. Lazio’s last top-flight win in this fixture was back in 1995.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cagliari (probable): Carini; Lopez, Bega, Canini, Agostini; Abeijon, Conticchio, Conti, Gobbi; Suazo, Esposito

Lazio (probable): Peruzzi; Oddo, Stendardo, Cribari, Zauri; Behrami, Firmani, Dabo, Cesar; Pandev, Rocchi

I believe the transfer deadline for Toro has passed (09/09/2005), so if Langella is to come, it will not be until winter.

Cagliari 1 - 1 Lazio
Suazo 1 (C), Siviglia 13 (L)
Stadio Sant'Elia

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniele Arrigoni's Cagliari comeback saw them score a goal after 35 seconds, but Lazio fought back for a point in Sardinia.

Cagliari Coach Daniele Arrigoni left in a cloud of controversy last season, but after Attilio Tesser's shock dismissal following his first game in charge, he has returned to Sardinia. This was his 'debut' in front of the home fans who have not been entirely overjoyed at his comeback, especially as it relegates Antonio Langella to the bench.

Lazio struggled to see off Messina in Week 1 and haven't won here since 1995-96, notching up five consecutive draws at the Stadio Sant'Elia.

Incredibly, Cagliari opened the scoring after just 35 seconds of play. Andrea Capone waltzed through a napping Lazio defence and passed it to David Suazo for a precise finish.

Lazio fought back and equalised in chaotic fashion. A corner kick was not cleared effectively and Sebastiano Siviglia's diving header bounced just in front of Fabian Carini to slot in at the near post.

A Bega error nearly cost Cagliari dearly, as Carini had to rush off his line to close down Tommaso Rocchi.

Angelo Peruzzi was alert on a powerful Daniele Conti strike from a tight angle, as once again the Lazio defence allowed him to walk through practically undisturbed.

Massimo Oddo caused some real problems down the right flank and only a last-ditch tackle prevented Rocchi from scoring on his pass.

Peruzzi made his international comeback after seven years this week and showed why with a stunning reaction save on Massimo Gobbi's diving header from a taut Mauro Esposito cross. A deflected Suazo effort from 20 metres also skimmed the woodwork.

Cagliari goalkeeper Carini went off at half-time with a muscular injury to be replaced by Campagnolo, while Goran Pandev later took over from a quiet Di Canio.

Esposito had the first real chance of the second half, his volley on Bega's pass just whistling past the top corner of the goal.

Local hero Antonio Langella held a press conference after a row with Arrigoni last week, but has cleared the air and made his appearance for the final half-hour. The Italian international ballooned a good scoring opportunity over the bar.

Cagliari were forced to play the final 13 minutes in 10 men, as Diego Lopez was shown a straight red card for a late challenge from behind on substitute Pandev.

Nonetheless, Oddo prevented Nelson Abeijon getting on the end of Suazo's cross and on the other side of the pitch Campagnolo got down well to parry a Pandev piledriver.

Despite playing in 10 men, Cagliari had the best chances and in the final minute Peruzzi flew to fingertip Conti's free kick over the bar.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cagliari: Carini (Campagnolo 46); Lopez, Canini, Bega, Agostini; Abeijon, Conti, Gobbi, Capone (Langella 61); Esposito (Pisano 78), Suazo

Lazio: Peruzzi; Oddo, Siviglia, Stendardo, Zauri; Manfredini, Dabo, Baronio (Firmani 78), Cesar; Di Canio (Pandev 57), Rocchi (Inzaghi 82)

Ref: Bertini

Sent off: Lopez 77 (C)

Serie A Week 3 - 18/9/05 (14.00 UK)
Cagliari - Messina

Stadio Sant'Elia

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Both of these sides were fresh up for the 2004-05 season and both encounters between the two finished 2-1 in favour of the home team. Cagliari will be hoping to make use of their stadium advantage once again in this battle of the islands. This is especially important for the Sardinian outfit considering their notoriously poor away form. But with their away defeat at Siena being followed by an uninspiring draw at the Sant’Elia with Lazio, they will have to improve, particularly in defence.

Messina will also need to play better than they did against Lazio. They were beaten at the Olimpico in Week 1 and never really got into the game. They did play better against Fiorentina last week to come back from two goals down to draw 2-2.

Neither of these sides have won a match yet this season but that could be about to change. The Sicilians have been gradually improving and the Rossoblu can be dangerous on their home ground. With both teams’ defensive frailties though this could be a high-scoring encounter whoever wins.

With goalkeeper Fabian Carini recovering from the muscle strain that saw him replaced against Lazio, Cagliari are likely to play the same side as in their first two games. The only exceptions are Claudio Ferrarese replacing Andrea Capone and Diego Lopez’s suspension allowing Francesco Pisano to make his first start of the season.

The Giallorossi will also stick with much of the same team. Marco Storari and Carmine Coppola both keep their places, while the only change is Ivica Iliev’s inclusion in place of Domenico Giampà.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cagliari (probable): Carini; Pisano, Bega, Canini, Agostini; Ferrarese, Abeijon, Conti, Gobbi; Esposito, Suazo

Messina (probable): Storari; Zoro, Rezaei, Zanchi, Aronica; Coppola, Donati; Iliev, D’Agostino, Di Napoli; Zampagna

Arrigoni resigns at Cagliari – again! Friday 16 September, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cagliari are already looking for their third Coach of the season after Daniele Arrigoni quit on Friday.

The tactician, who only returned to the club after the Week 1 dismissal of Attilio Tesser, has resigned for the second time in the space of a few months after his initial exit in the summer.

Arrigoni, who also briefly took charge of Torino in August, offered his latest resignation after his return proved unpopular with fans and some players.

"The club have taken note of the Coach’s request, who deemed that there was not the right environment for the team to work in given the recent protests," read a statement.

"The club would like to thank Mr Daniele Arrigoni for his sensibility and professionalism. We wish him all the best for the future."

Arrigoni’s contract with the Sardinian outfit was set to expire on June 30, 2007.

It’s unclear at this stage who the Rossoblu will now appoint in their quest to ensure Serie A survival.
