Bernardo Corradi has agreed to remain with Montreal Impact until the end of the 2012 MLS season.

Bernardo Corradi has agreed to remain with Montreal Impact until the end of the 2012 MLS season.

The 36-year old Italian striker joined the Impact in March on an initial three-month deal but late last week came to a verbal agreement with the president of the Canadian club, Joey Saputo, to stay on.

“My wish was always the same: it was to stay here,” Corradi said.

“After that 50-minute chat in Joey's office, I walked out with a smile on my face.”

And the decision to remain at Saputo Stadium has delighted head coach Jesse Marsch who indicated he will show a lot of faith in the former Manchester City, Lazio, Valencia and Udinese attacker.

“On the field, he brings an intelligence, an awareness, a savvyness around the goal, a confidence," Marsch said.

"He’s good in the air, he slows the game down for us. His experience and his qualities make us better. He’s different from other pieces we have. You look at some of our attacking players, and I'm lucky, as a coach, to have a lot of different talents to pick from.”
