Star man - Diego Capel

Diego CapelSporting pulled off what many consider a major coup when they puchased Spanish international Diego Capel in July 2011 for what appears a cut-price fee. The exciting winger enjoyed a superb start to his career, playing his part in the swashbuckling Sevilla team that won back to back UEFA Cup victories under Juande Ramos.

Upon the emergence of Diego Perotti, his role at the Andalusian club diminished, but if Domingos Paciencia can rekindle his undoubted talent to the full it's a good bet Sporting fans, used to classy wingers, will have a new favourite.
