Marko Livaja looks likely to have played his last game for Atalanta, with the club reportedly unwilling to sign him in the summer.
The Croatian forward was involved in two unsavoury incidents with club supporters at the weekend, reacting first pitchside to jeers at his substitution and then taking to social media to hit out at them.
Whilst he has since apologised, the Gazzetta dello Sport report that he is unlikely to appear for the club again and that he won’t be present at training today.
It is believed that the 20-year-old is currently in his home city of Split, granted leave by the club initially to recover from inflammation on an Achilles injury.
Speculation is, though, that the club are unhappy with the player’s behaviour, have fined him and determined that he won’t be included in further plans to the end of the season - if fit.
The youngster will then apparently be returned to Inter in the summer and the purchase option on 50 per cent of his registration passed up.
Livaja has previously fallen foul of Atalanta disciplinary procedures, for incidents such as clashing with teammate Ivan Radovanovic in training and arguing with Coach Stefano Colantuono.
