Former Chelsea, Juventus and Fiorentina striker Adrian Mutu has informally announced his retirement.
The Romanian had been inches from a return to Fiorentina for a trial period of training, but ultimately that move fell through at the start of this month.
Subsequently, the 36-year-old is quoted as telling to Romanian outlet Digisport.ro that his final decision has been to leave the world of football.
“I don't want to talk of football,” Mutu is quoted as saying. “I am retired.”
