“President Tommaso Giulini and director of sport Stefano Capozucca, after learning what I wanted, disappeared. They abandoned me.”

“Cagliari increased their salary bill a year ago by seeking out big names, but then the resources ran dry and it wasn’t possible for them to continue that approach.

“They betrayed me, I am very let down. I gave up on so much in order to wear the Cagliari jersey, but I saw they didn’t really want to rely on me. They just assumed I’d come back anyway.

“I remained in contact with the staff throughout, my desire was clear and I have proved my love for Cagliari. Unfortunately, people forget quickly in football.”
