In addition, Ali left Atalanta club earlier than expected to join the national team. However, no one could have imagined he would be terminated after returning to Italy.
However, he unexpectedly received the news of his contract termination without any prior notice. Upon receiving this information, the fans could not hide their anger at the actions of Atalanta towards Ali.
The termination of the contract at the beginning of February is extremely inconvenient for Ali when the winter transfer market has officially closed. While the governing club Udinese has sent an official list of players to the Italian Football Federation without Ali’s name.
