Maicon’s agent: he will renew with Roma

Roberto Calenda, the agent of Maicon, spoke today to La Gazzetta dello Sport regarding the renewal with the Brazilian and the club:

“There’s an agreement with Roma on everything: his return and his renewal. The media’s attack against the player is unacceptable. Maicon played his last game of the World Cup on July 12. He’s agreed with his club that he will return to work on August 12. Any other talk is unnecessary and insignificant. The renewal? There’s an agreement with AS Roma agreement on everything. Maicon has proved his worth in Rome and will continue to do so with determination and professionalism. Everything else doesn’t matter. I do not see how it’s possible to create a controversy or make baseless accusations to try and disrupt the atmosphere. It’s unacceptable. I repeat: between the player and the club, there is a full agreement: the date of his return and the renewal of his contract.”
