Coentrao: I'm not joining Sporting Lisbon.


Real Madrid full-back Fabio Coentrao has denied rumours linking him with a move to Sporting Lisbon, saying he would only play for Benfica in Portugal.

The former Benfica man has a contract with Los Blancos which is to expire in 2019 but he made just 17 appearances under Carlo Ancelotti last term, clearly not a regular starter at the Bernabeu.

“I am dispelling any rumours that I will go to play for Sporting,” he wrote on Facebook.

“Despite the respect I have for Portuguese clubs, in Portugal I will only play for Benfica.”
