Andrea Ranocchia reportedly gave up on €4m by leaving Monza after just three months and has been praised by Adriano Galliani: ‘A true gentleman.’

The former Inter captain had signed a two-year deal over the summer, but Monza announced his exit with an official statement on Wednesday.

Ranocchia suffered a severe fibula injury against Napoli in August and decided to terminate his contract as he feared he wouldn’t be able to play his best after returning.

According to Gazzetta, the 34-year-old has given up on €4m and may decide to retire now.

Monza director Adriano Galliani has praised the ex-Inter captain in an interview with Il Corriere della Sera: “He is a true gentleman, he has confirmed that he’s the person I thought he was. A gentleman and a good person.”

Ranocchia had made two competitive appearances with Monza before his injury, one in Serie A and one in Coppa Italia.

He has played 218 games in Italy’s top flight, scoring 14 goals. He also played for Arezzo, Bari, Genoa, Hull City, Sampdoria and Monza.
