Olympiacos Completes First Signing With Figueiras

- Olympiacos Completes First Signing With Figueiras -
 

Olympiacos completed their first signing of the summer with Diogo Figueiras. The right back transferred from the Europa League Champions, Sevilla, and will wear the Erythrolefka next season.

The 25 year old Portuguese right back is a personal preference of Olympiacos coach Marco Silva. The Portuguese defender can play as a right or left back and is known for his defensive game. Figueiras is coming off an average season with Sevilla and Genoa (played the first half of the season on loan at the Italian Club). He had 9 appearances, 1 goal in the Italian Serie A and 4 appearances with Sevilla in the second half of the year. In his first two years at Sevilla (2014, 2015), he had much better seasons with a total of 50 appearances, 2 goals, and won the Europa League both years.

Olympiacos bought the Portuguese player for 1-1.5 million Euros from Sevilla and Figueiras has signed a 2-3 year contract (exact length to be announced) with the Erythrolefki.
