Former star Vieri to try his hand at poker

Former Italy striker Christian Vieri has decided to compete in poker competitions but has no plans to hang up his boots just yet.

The 35-year-old former Inter Milan forward is without a club having quit Serie A side Atalanta this month after fans jeered him during a training session.

"I enjoy cards a lot, but my future is still in football. I will stop when I'm fed up chasing after a ball and I am not bored yet. When I'm retired, who knows, I could become a professional poker player," he told Sportweek magazine.

Vieri is a big fan of Texas Hold'em Poker and just came back from Los Angeles, where he participated in two tournaments.

He will also attend the Pokerstars European Poker Tour in Sanremo from April 18-23 and the Grand Final in Monte Carlo at the end of the month.

"I have always played cards during training camps," revealed Vieri. "I used to play Italian card games, though. I rarely played poker.

"However, Texas Hold'em is just wonderful and it really gets you pumped up. I'm having a blast."
