The defender signed terms through to 2017.
â€śItâ€™s an indescribable joy which I am feeling,â€ť the former Inter and Bari man wrote on his personal website.
â€śThis shirt for which I have wept, rejoiced and spent days angered as a child after a loss is now mine â€“ even more so after my renewal.
â€śIâ€™m proud and honoured that I will be able to wear this glorious jersey for at least another five years,â€ť he added.
â€śI want to specifically thank those who have always believed in me, from the President to the Coach, from the directors to my teammates.
â€śI also want to thank the fans from my heart for supporting me and sometimes criticising me which helped me to grow.â€ť
