“Good luck Bruno in this new adventure!” the club said on its official website, before thanking the player for his passion and dedication to the team.
Besides Verona, he has played for the Premier League’s Manchester City and Middlesbrough, the Spanish clubs Valencia, Cordoba and Rayo Vallecano, as well as the Greek side AEK Athens.
After his arrival in Italy in Jan. 2017, he has played 35 matches and scored four goals.
He also wore the Verona shirt at the same time as his brother, Franco, who has been on the squad for two seasons.
