The defender is determined to come back for his side, scoffing at retirement suggestions...
Alessandro Nesta is determined to return to action sooner rather than later for Milan, shooting down rumours of retirement due to a back problem.
The stopper has been hampered by a back injury and he went under the knife to cure the problem in February. Although he has been recovering well, a number of voices in Italy claimed he was considering hanging up his boots. However, Nesta is focussed on wearing them once again, rubbishing the talk.
"Will I retire? That is bad talk, and I will prove it," Nesta told Sportmediaset.it.
"I am convinced that I will return to playing. If it's not this season then it will be the next."
Nesta has been training with the rest of the squad and he took part in a mini-match at Milanello earlier this week. He has not played since October, when he featured in a friendly in Albania.
Milan will be hoping the defender recovers completely for next season's adventure in the Champions League. The Rossoneri can secure second place this weekend by beating Udinese.
