Lazio striker and World Cup winner Miroslav Klose announced “I’ve decided to retire in 2015.”
The Germany star was decisive in his country’s triumph in Brazil, setting a new all-time record of 16 goals in World Cup finals.
“I’ve decided to retire in 2015,” Klose told Bild newspaper.
Having just renewed his contract with Lazio, it means he will see out his career in Serie A at the Stadio Olimpico.
Klose turned 36 last month and joined Lazio in July 2011.
