Antonio Di Natale scored on his 300th Serie A game for Udinese and assured “I’m not thinking about retirement.”
Now 35, the striker netted a late equaliser for today’s 1-1 home draw with Bologna.
“I am happy for me and my teammates,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“Bologna did well to make the most of Alessandro Diamanti’s free kick, but we also reacted strongly. The draw was the right result.
“I have to thank Bologna Coach Stefano Pioli, as he said the other day it was not possible that I’d go for three games in a row without scoring, so he was afraid I’d net against his side.”
Di Natale has said his objectives for this season are reaching 200 goals for Udinese and earning a place at the 2014 World Cup.
“I must work hard to reach my objectives and I hope that I can stay fit. I have fun playing football and as long as I have enthusiasm I’ll keep doing it. I’m not thinking about retirement.”
