Malaga have confirmed the signing of Paris St Germain defender Diego Lugano on loan until the end of the season.

Lugano, a Uruguay international with 72 caps, has seen his opportunities at the Parc des Princes limited this season, with Thiago Silva, Zoumana Camara and Mamadou Sakho ahead of him in the pecking order.

PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti was keen to pay tribute to the 32-year-old, who joined the current Ligue 1 leaders in 2011 from Fenerbahce after spending five years with the Turkish giants.

"Lugano has gone to Malaga, where he will surely have more game time," Ancelotti told PSG's official website.

"I want to emphasise that he was very professional. This is a good lesson for the whole group because he worked every day with great professionalism. Diego has set an example."

Malaga are currently fifth in La Liga and will hope the experience of Lugano will help them push for a European place.

Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
