Official: Pinilla joins Cagliari

Cagliari have officially signed striker Mauricio Pinilla from Palermo. “I am proud to become part of a club with such a great history behind it.”

The Chilean forward made the move on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.

“I am proud to become part of a great team and a club with such a great history behind it,” said Pinilla.

“I never had the chance to come to Sardinia, not even when playing for other teams in Serie A, but I know it is a splendid place with so many beautiful beaches.

“I know that they are one of Italy’s most organised clubs. I also know my new teammates, especially as I played against them in Palermo earlier this season.

“I am certain of one thing, that Cagliari are one of the best sides in this tournament and we need fear nobody.”
