Veteran Vieri signing with Brazil club

Brazilian club Botafogo says it is about to sign former Italy striker Christian Vieri for the 2010 season.
Club president Luiz Pereira says the club is also negotiating to acquire left back Francesco Coco, Vieri's former teammate on the Italian national team. Both played at the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan.
Pereira says the players have agreed to play for Botafogo and minor details are pending.
Vieri, a former Juventus and AC Milan striker, confirmed to Brazilian media through his agent that he is near a deal with Botafogo. The 36-year-old player last week announced his retirement from professional football.
