Nesta not thinking of retiring

Milan stopper Alessandro Nesta has dismissed suggestions that this may be his final season in the game.

Nesta signed a new one-year contract at Milanello earlier this summer, a deal that some thought would be his last given that he turned 35 in March.

"It is my intention to retire as late as possible and in a decent manner," the veteran told Sky Sport Italia.

Nesta: Leonardo is no traitor

Former Milan player and boss Leonardo is not a traitor for joining Inter, says Alessandro Nesta.

The Brazilian coached Nesta at Milan last season, before he left and was later appointed as Nerazzurri tactician on Christmas Eve.

"You leave Milan and then Inter call, are you going to turn them down? It's normal for somebody who wants to be a Coach to boss Inter if they are asked," Nesta told Sky Italia.

"These opportunities don't come around every day. As far as I am concerned, Leonardo is not a traitor.

Nesta: 'Pirlo is a football genius'

Alessandro Nesta waves goodbye to Milan teammate Andrea Pirlo. “He's one of the last who can be called a football genius.”

The club decided not to renew his contract, so Pirlo will play his final game for the Rossoneri this evening before heading to Juventus.

“Pirlo is one of the last who can be called a football genius,” Nesta told La Stampa newspaper.

“He sometimes looks like he might be asleep, but he is really a rock in the locker room and is worth 10 men.

Nesta renews until 2012

Milan will still be able to count on Alessandro Nesta next season after he extended his contract with the Rossoneri.

The defender's previous deal was set to expire in June, but he's agreed fresh terms for another 12 months after talks today.

Nesta, born in 1976, has been with the San Siro giants since his August 2002 move from hometown club Lazio.

The former Italian international, despite his age, has played in 26 League games for the Diavolo so far this term. Only Ignazio Abate and Thiago Silva, out of the defensive unit, have played in more.

“We have an eight-point advantage and the Scudetto is thoroughly deserved. I dedicate this title to my family.”

In an interview with Milan Channel, the veteran became the second Milanista in a week, after Gianluca Zambrotta, to applaud rising star Abate.

"He's a good lad who always applies himself," he said of the former midfielder who is now playing regularly at right-back.

"He was used to another role, but by working seriously he has demonstrated himself to be an excellent full-back who could go on and play for Italy.

“It's not true that I will retire next season, nor is it true that I had a row with the club. In fact, I haven't even spoken to the club yet,” Nesta told Sky Sport Italia.
