Moutinho returns to Falkirk

Ex-Falkirk favourite Pedro Moutinho is training with his former club, as he tries to secure a move back to Westfield from Portuguese club Maritimo.

The former Bairns player left for his homeland in 2008 after four years in Scotland, but kept his house in Falkirk and hinted on his departure that he hoped to return one day.

That day has come only one year into his two-year contract with Maritimo, where he has struggled to make an impact. After failing to break into the first team, he was farmed out on loan to First Division side Rio Ave FC, where he spent the end of last season on loan.

A dispute with the Madeira-based side has left him frozen out and he has flown back to Scotland in the hope that his contract with Maritimo will be cancelled this week.

On his departure last summer, Moutinho told the Falkirk official website: “I am going to keep the house I have in Falkirk and hopefully I’ll be back.

“I feel now is the right move for me with a two year contract but after that I will be a free agent again and who knows. This is not goodbye, but see you later.”

Moutinho was part of Falkirk’s First Division winning squad in 2005, but missed the second half of the season due to a knee injury.

Manager Eddie May has now offered the former fans’ favourite use of Falkirk’s training facilities, but has made no decision as to whether he will bring back Moutinho into his squad.
