Recoba returns to first club Danubio

MONTEVIDEO - Former Uruguay forward Alvaro "Chino" Recoba has returned to his first club Danubio after more than a decade in Europe, mainly with Inter Milan.

"I'm back in my home and I hope it's all for the good," Recoba told reporters after signing a three-year deal on Monday with the modest Montevideo club which finished the Apertura championship in sixth place this month.

The 33-year-old Recoba also played for Nacional, one of Uruguay's big-two clubs, before joining Inter in 1997. He had spells with Venezia and Torino in Italy and most recently Panionios in Greece.
