Di Vaio: Bologna for life

Marco Di Vaio has confirmed that he will again be playing for Bologna in the new season. "I want to end my career here."

The veteran striker was assessing his future after being involved in a rather odd off the field matter last term.

The striker was one of a number of Bologna players who were questioned by authorities over the alleged use of disabled car parking badges.

"I went through some tough moments at the end of last season," he stated. "However, thanks to my family and the fans I got through it.

"I analysed my mistakes and I have that serenity again to hold my head up high.

"It's true that I did receive several offers from clubs, but I've had three splendid years here and I don't see myself in a new shirt.

"I've always said that I wanted to end my career here and I haven't changed my mind. I'm charged up for the new season."

The ex-Juventus and Parma forward scored 19 goals in 38 League games for Bologna last season.

Di Vaio, now 35, joined the Stadio Dall'Ara outfit in 2008 after a spell at Genoa.
