captain Antonio Di Natale
says he may retire at the end of the season following the death of former teammate Piermario Morosini
while playing for Livorno on Saturday.
The 25-year-old Morosini, who was on loan from Serie A side Udinese, collapsed and died after suffering a cardiac arrest during a Serie B match at Pescara.
On Monday, Di Natale said too much soccer is played in Italy and that ''last year I thought about retiring. ... I'll play these last six games for Mario and then we'll see.''
Di Natale is 34. The Italy striker has finished as top scorer in Serie A for the past two seasons. He is currently tied for second with 20, three fewer than AC Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
