Roberto Cardinale Is On His Way

Alessandro Nesta has announced that defender Roberto Cardinale wants to leave the club.
The 32 year old had an urgent meeting with the manager after he told his teammates during the last training session. It is thought that he is not content with the playing time he gets. Since moving to AS Venezia, he has made no appearances for the club. He currently trains with the Reserve squad, along with Marco Rossi and new youth signing Francesco Grazioso.
“He told the teammates today during the daily training session run by the assistant [Antonio Aloisi]. The assistant then came and told me, so I called him for an urgent meeting, in which we discussed the problem and possible solutions in a professional manner.”
said Nesta in his weekly press conference.
“I would like to thank Roberto for the contributions he has made at the club, and I wish him the best for the future, wherever that might be.”
This is the first kind of player unhappiness at the club, which was formed at the beginning of the season, and it was wondered how the club would handle it. Many supporters and journalists are impressed by the “professionalism” that the club has shown.
Roberto Cardinale started his career at Salernitana in 1998. He joined I Gondolieri after three seasons with league rivals Avellino.
It is not sure what clubs will come in for the quickly-aging centre back, but one thing is certain, a transfer will take place.
