Monza announced this morning that Andrea Ranocchia had terminated his contract by mutual consent, a decision made by the former Inter defender and not the club.

The 34-year-old Italian defender ended an 11-year association with the Nerazzurri in the summer, joining the newly promoted Monza on a free transfer. Ranocchia was keen to return to action after remaining a backup option with Inter over the last few years, but things did not go to plan.

Ranocchia suffered a compound fracture of the fibula of his right leg and sprained his right ankle in his first Serie A appearance for the club in a 4-0 loss to Napoli in August. Initially he expected to sidelined for around three months, but the latest tests suggested that he wouldn’t be fully fit until February or March at the earliest.

As detailed by, Ranocchia was the one who decided to terminate his contract with Monza, who were willing to stand by the 34-year-old. The former Inter captain was concerned that he wouldn’t be able to play his best after returning and he didn’t want to receive his salary whilst not contributing, pushing him to decide to leave the club after just three months.
