Tottenham bid Gollini farewell as player returns to Serie A

Pierluigi Gollini has returned to parent club Atalanta at the end of his loan spell at Tottenham.

The 27-year-old was on a season-long loan from the Serie A side, but, as he was back-up to France captain Hugo Lloris, he only made 10 appearances, the last of which came in January.

A Spurs statement read: “We can confirm the departure of Pierluigi Gollini following the conclusion of his loan spell from Atalanta.

“The goalkeeper joined us last July for the duration of the 2021-22 season and made 10 appearances in our colours.

“We thank Pierluigi for his service and wish him well for the future.”
