Luca Toni fuels retirement talk

Italian forward Luca Toni has revealed that he plans to retire after he finishes the spell at Artemio Franchi.

The 35-year-old returned in the summer to the club where he had made a name for himself and has had a big role to play in Viola’s impressive start to the league campaign.

While Toni admits that he has no intention of playing for another club after Fiorentina, he cannot say with certainty this will be the final season in his career.

“I know that Fiorentina will be my last team, but I don’t know whether this will be my last season,” Toni said in an interview with Il Corriere della Sera. “I know that Fiorentina had other targets before me.

“But when I was given the opportunity to join again, I opted to put myself on the line in a city which loved me and where I feel at home.

“That’s why I feel that I always have to give something more to Fiorentina.”

Toni returned to Artemio Franchi following a spell with Al Nasr, and managed to score 3 goals in 8 Serie A appearances this season.

During his first spell at the club, the former Italy international bagged 47 goals in 67 league games for Viola.

Over the course of his career, Toni has scored exactly 200 goals in 416 league matches, featuring for 12 different clubs in the process.
