Soccer-Out-of-favour Godin leaves Cagliari for Atletico Mineiro

ROME (Reuters) - Uruguayan defender Diego Godin has joined Brazilian champions Atletico Mineiro on a one-year deal after leaving Italian side Cagliari, the Brazilian club announced on Wednesday.

Nicknamed 'the Pharaoh' for his regal bearing on the field, he has more than 150 caps for his country and collected a series of major titles in Spain, where he played nine years with Atletico Madrid.He will join a team that is without a coach after Cuca resigned following a hugely successful season in which Atletico won the Brazilian league for the first time since 1971, as well as the Copa do Brasil and the Minas Gerais state championship.

Cagliari agreed to terminate his contract and announced that Edoardo Goldaniga will come from Sassuolo to replace him. The Italian defender signed a deal until June 2024.(Reporting by Alasdair Mackenzie and Andrew Downie; Editing by Toby Davis)
