Andrea Barzagli decided to end his career


Juventus’ defender Andrea Barzagli confirmed that he would end his career in a few months. The 38-year-old performer decided to end up with football.

“I have to decide what I want and what I am capable of. I thought about it for a long time, but this it’s a good moment to leave,” Barzagli said to Sky Sport Italia.

“Considering my age and all the injuries that I had to face, I’m going to hang up my boots in June. I started thinking about what to do next, because I wanted to become a player from early childhood, and now I have to think about what will happen after leaving the field.”

It is assumed that the defender could help Allegri as part of coaching staff at Juventus, but the player himself does not deny that he will work as sport expert on TV.

Barzagli has played for Juve since January 2011, previously he played for Ascoli, Chievo, Palermo and Wolfsburg.
