Di Natale-Udinese for life

Antonio Di Natale will end his career at Udinese after rejecting a move to Juventus last summer, his agent says.

"He's very tied to Udine and he's already chosen this club for life," Bruno Carpeggiani noted on Monday.

The veteran striker, last year's Capocannoniere with 29 strikes, was targeted by the Old Lady during the summer but he turned them down.

And after a sluggish start to the season, he's on fire again after another hat-trick against hometown club Napoli yesterday.

"Di Natale is now in the form he was in last season," his representative added.

"At the start of this season he was probably suffering from the tiredness of going to the World Cup."

Di Natale, 33, is contracted to the Bianconeri until the summer of 2013 and has his eyes on scoring 100 Serie A goals for the club – he's now on 92.

Toto, who hasn't played for Italy since the summer, joined the Stadio Friuli outfit in 2004 from Empoli.
