Cufre makes Dinamo move

Veteran Argentina defender Leandro Cufre has signed a two-year deal to play for Dinamo Zagreb, the Croatian champions said on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old, who moves from German side Hertha Berlin, said: "I feel as though this is my first club, like a 17-year-old youngster once again. I hope I can match the expectations."

Cufre has four national caps to his name. He gained notoriety at Germany 2006 by becoming the first player to be red-carded after the final whistle when, as an unused substitute, he attacked Germany's Per Mertesacker after Argentina had lost their quarter-final against the hosts 4-2 on penalties.

Cufre, who is on a salary of 650,000-euros a year, moved to Europe from Argentina outfit Gimnasia La Plata in 2002 and has had spells with AS Roma, Siena and Monaco before his brief time with Hertha where he had been on loan since January.
