The winger has been out for over a year when a cardiac arrhythmia was discovered.
“It has been a difficult year and for a while there were no certainties about anything," he told Sky Sport Italia.
“We then realised it just needed a bit of time and I thank everyone who helped me.
“After a year out I also thank Mancini, who puts his faith in me. I always try to give my all and be ready when needed.
“I dedicate the goal to my family and above all my wife."
