Antonio Di Natale has shelved his retirement plans at Udinese.

The veteran striker has decided to carry on next season, despite announcing his retirement last season.

He told Corriere della Sera: "I am bound to Udine and to Udinese for another year by contract.

"Last Thursday I went into president Pozzo's office and we talked about what to do.

"Guidolin had decided to leave, I wanted to understand the project at Udinese, now without the coach.

"The president reassured me, now I am on vacation."
