Petrov 'not quitting' - agent

Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov has not retired from the game as he fights against acute leukaemia, after some reports suggested he was ready to end his career.

• McLeish: Petrov to win battle

Petrov, 32, was diagnosed with the condition on Friday after falling ill with a virus after the game against Arsenal last weekend. He has made 30 appearances for the club this season in all competitions.

In quotes attributed to him from Bulgarian sports daily Tema Sport, Petrov reportedly said on Saturday: "Football is over, this is the end. I am now beginning to fight for my life and I will fight.

"I lost my energy early in the second half [at Arsenal] and it was very unusual for me. But this is life, you see we drank a coffee in London a week ago and now we're talking about things like this.

"I'll fight, it's clear and I also would like to thank everyone for the support from all around the world."

However, speaking to Sky Sports, his agent Stephen Hughes said: "It is not true that Stiliyan has said he is retiring from football. What he did say was that he was fighting for his life and that he will fight to recover."
