Legrottaglie commits to Catania

Nicola Legrottaglie has officially extended his contract until 2014 and confirms he’d like to stay in Catania as a director or Coach.

The 36-year-old centre-back put pen to paper today on a new deal holding him to the Elefantini until June 30 2014.

“I am very happy with this year,” he told TMW. “We surpassed ourselves and on a personal level I achieved two records in two years with Catania. I’m the highest-scoring Catania defender ever and the most prolific defender still in activity.

“After 2014 I will try to evaluate things one year at a time. Considering the way I feel now, I think I could still continue playing well.

“I have been clear with the club that as long as I am a player, I will continue to focus on the field and play every game that I can.

“We’ll see about the future, but I’d like to be a director or a Coach. The doors are open and if someone, hopefully Catania, will allow me to work with my principles then I’d be happy to transmit them to others.”
