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