Agent insists Ricchiuti’s future is at Catania

The 31-year-old has been linked with several clubs in recent weeks.

“Not everyone was shocked that at Catania, Adrian would be a success,” agent Giovanni Tateo told “I knew that his qualities would be on show in the Serie A for all to see this season.

“At Catania, [coach Sinisa] Mihajlovic has found the right mix of players, and Adrian is showing what he can do on the pitch. He has never worked so hard in his life at training, and gives it his all.

“He walks off the pitch very tired, but pleased that he has helped his team-mates. I am certain that next season, Ricchiuti can continue to grow as a footballer, confirming himself as a starting XI player,” Tateo concluded.
