The agent of Guido Marilungo has thanked Atalanta for their show of belief in the player following his injury nightmare.
The Bergamo club have extended the contract of the former Italian Under-21 international until June 2017.
They made such a move after the almost 24-year-old seriously damaged the same knee ligaments in March and November 2012.
“I thank the Percassi family and director general Pierpaolo Marino for the sensitivity shown at this time,” Silvio Pagliari told playermanagement.eu.
“To extend the contract of a player who has been sidelined for an extended period is synonymous of great gentlemen.
“Guido is training with the squad and will do his very best in order to repay their trust in him.”
Marilungo featured in just two Serie A games last term for a total of only 46 minutes.
