AC Milan’s Sporting Director - Massimiliano Mirabelli has announced via his twitter feed (of all places) that Gabriel Paletta will finally be leaving the club - after a mutual termination of Paletta’s playing contract was agreed between the player and the club.
La decisione di rescindere il contratto con #Paletta è stata concordata tra le parti. Ci tengo a salutare un grande uomo prima che calciatore. Un esempio di correttezza, professionalità e lealtà sportiva. In bocca al lupo Gabriel, per tutto quello che verrà nella tua carriera. pic.twitter.com/PFBf4VYboQ— MMirabelliOfficial (@MassMirabelli) January 30, 2018
Mirabelli’s tweet reads as follows: “The decision to terminate the contract with #Paletta has been agreed between both parties. A great man before he is a footballer. A shining example of fairness, professionalism and sporting loyalty. Good luck Gabriel, for everything that will come next in your career.”
Gabriel Paletta made 44 appearances for the Rossoneri in a three-year stint at the club. He will likely be remembered for a series of rash tackles rather than anything else, picking up a few red cards during his time at Milan!
It is not yet known where the Argentine-born centre-half will head to next, but after a career that has taken him from Buenos Aires to Milan via Parma and Liverpool, expect the unexpected!
