Atalanta captain Papu Gomez sent a message to the Orobici fans. ‘When I leave, you will know the truth’.
Gomez future at Atalanta seems uncertain after a reported incident at half-time against FC Midtjylland in the Champions League.
He has since been left out of the starting line-up and rumours of an exit in January have emerged in Italy.
The captain and one of the Bergamaschi’s most important players in recent years responded through a message on an Instagram story.
“Dear fans, I’m writing to you here because I have no other means to defend myself or talk to you,” Gomez wrote on Instagram.
“I just want to tell you that, when I leave, you will know the truth about everything.
“You know me well; you know who I am. I love you, your captain.”
