Massimo Ambrosini may call it quits

Massimo Ambrosini says he may retire from the game after his contract with Fiorentina, which expires this summer, was not renewed.

Ambrosini will become a free agent at the end of June, but the 36-year-old told to La Gazzetta dello Sport that he may not even try to find a new club.

"I'm going to take a bit of time to reflect on my future," he said. "I'm not sure I'll play another season in Italy, unless I get an offer I can't refuse. If I were to play abroad, it would also depend on what the offer is, but I also have to consider that I'll be 37 in 10 days' time.

"I'm physically fine, but I wouldn't have any problem retiring. Calling it a day when I'm still fine is an option that I'm not going to exclude."

Ambrosini leaves Florence with more than a few regrets. He played just 21 times in the season just ended, rarely featuring in the second half of the campaign. "I don't feel disrespected, but I am a bit surprised by some of the technical choices made with regards to me in the second half of the season," he said.

"I would have liked to have played a few more matches, particularly some of the big ones towards the end of the season. It was a magnificent year and I had so much joy that I didn't think I would get to have again. I've never hidden the fact I would have liked to have played on here in Florence, but the club told me they had taken a different decision."

Ambrosini was capped 35 times by Italy and spent 18 years of his career with AC Milan before being released by them last summer.
