Manager Gabriel Markaj had this to say:
"I would like to thank Gianni for being part of our journey; not many people know how important of a player Gianni was for us on and off the field. No doubt his character help to build a healthy and inclusive environment at our club.
Of course, I am a bid disappointed that he leaves us in the middle of a project but at the same time I understand that he is a young player and he needs sufficient game time to develop. I have no doubts he will be a key player at Adelaide Uni."

"I wish all the best and the door will always be open for his return to the club in the future." he continued.

The club will soon start the process to complete the First Team coaching staff.
