Cannavaro: I Am Not Washed Up!

Juventus veteran Fabio Cannavaro has hit out at critics that say he is “washed up”.

Cannavaro says he will hang up his boots only if Italy win a second consecutive World Cup this summer.

“Am I washed up? No, I’m more experienced and more of an expert,” insisted the Juventus defender who turns 37 in September.

“I will keep going, even away from Turin. But if I win in South Africa, then I will quit football a moment later.

“I am optimistic, as Italy have a good mix of experience and youth. We can go to South Africa and defend our title the best possible way.”

Juventus have already hinted they will not be renewing Cannavaro’s contract, especially as he never quite made up with the fans after his 2006 move to Real Madrid.

“Do I regret returning to Juventus? Not at all. There are some regrets about this season with so many peaks and troughs, of objectives that we failed to achieve and seeing a Coach sacked.

“Ciro Ferrara is also a friend, so the disappointment over that was even worse. We were eliminated from the Champions and Europa League. The fault lies with everyone, the responsibility should be divided equally.”
