Crespo set for new adventure

Parma striker Hernan Crespo has announced that he will retire from top-level football at the end of the season but says he could be tempted by a move to the MLS or Middle East.

• Crespo extends Parma deal

Former Argentina international Crespo, 36, has spent the bulk of his career in Italy with the likes of Lazio, AC Milan and Inter. He returned to Parma in January last year but, after signing a one-year contract extension in June, he has now said that his time in Serie A is coming to a close.

"This is the season of my goodbye," he said. "In June I'll quit playing football at the highest level. I will almost certainly be leaving Italy, but until then I will continue to work hard because I like doing that."

On his next destination, he added: "I won't rule out Dubai, Qatar or America. I'll certainly choose something that will be interesting for me, that will make me feel happy. I want to end my playing days in a tranquil environment before returning to Italy."

Crespo said a director role with Parma is an "option" after he hangs up his boots.
