Portuguese Duo Moves to Iraklis

Andre Marques and Daniel Fernandes have moved from Sporting and Bochum, respectively, to Greek outfit Iraklis Thessaloniki. Andre Marques, a left-back, was finally finding his stride under former coach Paulo Bento, but when Carvalhal took over the reigns, it became evident that Marques was not in his plans. In Germany, Daniel Fernandes has slowly been falling out of favor, and has barely played at all this season. The move probably has more meaning for Fernandes than it does for Marques, because Fernandes is trying to salvage any chance of playing for Portugal at the World Cup.
