Udinese veteran Antonio di Natale says he'll keep going after reaching 300 games with the club yesterday.

Now 35, the striker netted a late equaliser for today’s 1-1 home draw with Bologna.

“I am happy for me and my teammates,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Bologna did well to make the most of Alessandro Diamanti’s free kick, but we also reacted strongly. The draw was the right result.

“I have to thank Bologna Coach Stefano Pioli, as he said the other day it was not possible that I’d go for three games in a row without scoring, so he was afraid I’d net against his side.”

He added: “I must work hard to reach my objectives and I hope that I can stay fit. I have fun playing football and as long as I have enthusiasm I’ll keep doing it. I’m not thinking about retirement.”
