When in Rome: Abel Xavier
Former Portugal defender Abel Xavier has joined AS Roma. Luigi Delneri lost defender Vincent Candela during the transfer window and has logically reinforced the back line.
Xavier, the much-traveled former Liverpool defender was linked with potential moves to Blackburn, Bolton and also Southampton but it seems Roma is now Xavier’s second stint in Italy, having played at Bari in 1995.
During his career Xavier has also played at Benfica in Portugal, Real Oviedo in Spain, PSV Eindhoven in Holland, Everton and Liverpool in England, Fenerbahce in Turkey, and Hanover in Germany -6 different countries (that I know of).
