Marco Di Vaio, a former Serie A star striker who played with Lazio and Juventus, among others, announced this will be his last season.
Montreal Impact striker Marco Di Vaio ended speculation on his soccer future by announcing that he will retire at the end of the Major League Soccer season.
The announcement ended speculation that he would stay on an extra season, with the Impact advancing in Concacaf Champions League and the chemistry he has developed with new designated player Ignacio Piatti.
The 38 year-old Di Vaio has scored 31 goals in 72 MLS games, while scoring 142 goals in 342 Serie A matches.
“After a 20-year career, I am pleased to announce that I will be retiring in Montreal as a member of the Impact,” Di Vaio said in a statement Friday. “I am very proud of what I’ve accomplished over two decades as a pro.”
He will retire as the team’s leader in goals and will play his final game at Stade Saputo on Oct. 25th against D.C. United.
