AC Milan’s Nesta: I won’t return to Lazio

Nesta told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I have read many things in the papers, including that I would never come back to Italy from Miami.

“Instead, I am coming back on February 26, but I am not considering the idea of returning to Rome. My contract expires in 2008, with my injury I don’t think this is the right time to discuss an extension.

“Moving back to Lazio would make no sense now, that was a wonderful part of my life, but I am still young and I want to play at the highest levels, preferably in the Champions League.”
