Udinese legend Antonio di Natale has announced his retirement.

Di Natale has announced he will retire at the end of the season.

"The decision has already been made," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"I talked it over with my family and my agent, so I've decided this is my last campaign. It all ends in June."

Speaking after a 3-1 home defeat to Verona, Di Natale also confessed to feeling bitter at recent criticism.

"It does hurt, because I've scored more goals for Udinese than I've gone out for dinner with my wife. I care about Udinese, as this club is like my family."
