Official: Bani Yas complete David Trezeguet deal

The man who scored the golden goal in the final of the 2000 European Championships has signed a one-year deal with the UAE club in a major coup for the Pro-League
Former France and Juventus striker David Trezeguet has completed a move to join UAE club Bani Yas on a one-year deal.

The 33-year-old striker joins the 2010-11 UAE Pro-League runners-up on a free transfer after leaving Spanish club Hercules at the end of last term.

Trezeguet was signed on with Bani Yas on Tuesday having completed his medical with the club on Monday.

The Frenchman's one-year deal with Bani Yas is reportedly worth €1.7million.

The 1998 Fifa World Cup winner is a huge coup for Bani Yas and UAE top flight which has attracted several big names this off-season including Grafite, Luis Jimenez and Lucas Neill.

Bani Yas spokesman Musad Al Harthy told Sport360: “Trezeguet is a big player and has a lot of international experience. He may not have played in the Gulf, but everybody knows who Trezeguet is and he will do his best for Bani Yas.

“We have 11 players playing on the field and our midfield is strong. We are strong in attack too and Trezeguet’s arrival will make things better for us up front. We will work hard, the whole club must work together to achieve success."

Bani Yas are coached by Brazilian Jorvan Vieira, who guided Iraq to the 2007 Asian Cup, and have qualified for the 2012 Asian Champions League.
