MILAN - Former Italy striker Christian Vieri has decided to compete in poker competitions but has no plans to hang up his boots just yet.
The 35-year-old former Inter Milan forward is without a club having quit Serie A side Atalanta this month after fans jeered him during a training session.
"I enjoy cards a lot...but my future is still in football. I will stop when I'm fed up chasing after a ball and I am not bored yet. When I'm retired, who knows, I could become a professional poker player," he told Sportweek magazine.comments
