Pirlo 'not interested' in Australia move


Kuzmanovski, Gameiro, Colazo, Rose released by Melbourne City

Nicolas Colazo
Former Boca Juniors player Nicolas Colazo failed to shine in the A-League this season.

The off-season cull has begun at Melbourne City, with four players leaving the A-League club.

Sidelined pair Steve Kuzmanovski and Corey Gameiro -- who both missed the 2016-17 campaigns with ACL injuries will not see their contracts renewed.

Marquee winger Nicolas Colazo and veteran fullback Josh Rose have also reached the end of their playing deals and have left the club.

The decision to axe Gameiro takes the 24-year-old to a crossroads moment for his career.

Having endured three knee reconstructions in four seasons, it's yet to be seen whether he finds a new A-League home.

Gameiro hasn't started a match since November 2015.

Kuzmanovski, 20, has been out for a similar period of time, but with the benefit of youth could find a new contract easier to come by.
