Argentine Midfielder Montillo Leaves Botafogo

Former international midfielder Walter Montillo parted ways with Botafogo on Wednesday, just five months after joining the Brazilian club.

Injuries have limited the 33-year-old to just 10 matches since he arrived at the Rio de Janeiro outfit on a two-year deal from Shandong Luneng.

“Botafogo is grateful for his professionalism and dedication during his time at the club.”
