The 31-year-old has joined the Serie A outfit after signing a two-year deal that includes an option to extend his stay by a further 12 months.

The midfielder started out with Real Betis before moving to Valencia in 2006, ending five years with Los Che when transferred to Malaga.

The last of his 51 caps for his country came in 2007, and Joaquin is pleased that his move to La Viola is complete after lengthy negotiations.

"I chose Fiorentina because there were several weeks of (Fiorentina technical director Eduardo) Macia telling us of the Viola's plans," he said.

"I was sure it was time to play in Italy, it will be a good experience."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
