Table of Contents
Inter Milan goalkeeper Francesco Toldo announced on Wednesday his retirement from professional football at the age of 38.

Toldo played 147 times for the Nerazzurri after joining from Fiorentina back in 2001, but has struggled for first-team action since the arrival of Júlio César five years ago.

"My summer holidays have been nice and this year they’re longer than usual, seeing as I am giving up football," Toldo told Inter Channel.

"It is the first time I am saying it officially and I am quite moved, as this has been my work for 20 years.

"Despite this, I will continue at Inter and the collaboration that ties me to Inter Campus, trying to keep the image of this youth event at a high level and spreading the word of Inter."

The Padua-born custodian won 28 caps for Italy, most notably starring in their run to the final of Euro 2000. He was also in the Italian squads for the 1998 and 2002 World Cups as well as the European championships in 1996 and 2004.
