Rio de Janeiro, April 2 (IANS) Former Uruguay international striker Sebastian “Loco” Abreu has joined Montevideo-based outfit Central Espanol, the 24th club of his 23-year professional career, according to media reports.

The 40-year-old is said to have agreed in principle to a six-month deal with Central Espanol after parting ways with Brazil’s Bangu, reports Xinhua news agency.

“Sebastian gets along very well with our coach [Jorge Artigas] and that’s why we’ve been able to bring him,” Central Espanol president Fernando Lopez was quoted as saying by the Referi news service on Saturday.

“We have a verbal agreement. All that needs to happen now is for him to arrive.”

Abreu is aiming to break the world record of 25 clubs in a career held by retired German goalkeeper Lutz Pfannenstiel.
