Papu GOMEZ has extended his stay with Atalanta despite rumours linking him with a move away to Lazio and Napoli. His current contract will keep him at the club until 2022.
Atalanta President Antonio PERCASSI was very happy that GOMEZ has agreed to the new contract today.
“We continue together, we’re very happy. He’s the tip of our diamond. This renewal shows we really believe in him because of what he’s done for us and we’ll sure he’ll be a great example to the youngsters and the whole squad”.
Meanwhile, here’s what GOMEZ had to say:
“I am very happy to continue wearing this shirt, in a city like Bergamo. I am anxious to start, we are waiting for a great season”.
Last season, the attacking midfielder scored 16 goals in Serie A which helped the club to qualify for the Europa League next season.
