Adelmo Prenna, nicknamed "Memo", has been a left-inside forward and one of the greatest players Catania has ever had. His career started in minor leagues in 1952 before joining Roma in 1955. Here he played 13 matches, scoring 6 goals but he wasn't considered a priority so he was sold to Spal. After two seasons in which he played 34 matches and scored again 6 goals he transferred in 1958 to Catania where he had the best years of his career. In the Sicilian club he continued to show his skills already seen in the two previous teams: a prolific scorer with an uncommon sense of goal and ability to easily find space to shoot considering that his position wasn't centre-forward, gifted with a powerful shot and tough in the duels thanks to a devastating strenght, able to set himself free in the opponents' area always lurking around looking for goals opportunities; moreover since his position was inside-forward he was good and fast during counter-attacks and able to capitalize at best every ball he received by scoring or giving assists. He was also an incredible penalty taker and he's still Catania's record-man for penalties scored: he used to shoot at half height so powerfully that once the ball even cut a hole through the net in a match against Bologna; he also formed a fantastic couple of free kick takers alongside Guido Macor, clever and always prepared while Prenna had a good aim from the middle distance. Memo left Catania in 1964 after having scored 47 goals in 146 games. After a season at Napoli and a few other in minor leagues he retired in 1970.

No need to give him LF/LS, side only works for side positions (=> SB, WB, SMF, WF).
Btw is there any reason why he has only 78 for ATT? Considering that he was probably Catania's best offensive player during those years (who regularily showed his class in Serie A), I find that value quite low, especially when I compare it to "similar" players who all have at least yellow values there:

Considering your description about his shot and his FKs, I'd raise FKA by two, SP by one or two and decrease CUR by 1-2 points.

Ok, thanks for the suggestions.
I changed LF/LS to LF/BS;
ATT 78 --> 80; SP 89 --> 90;
FKA 81 --> 83; CUR 77 --> 76
