Hellas Verona striker, Luca Toni has not ruled out any adding another season onto his career, although he says he will try to make his mind up to have a long holiday in the upcoming summer. The 37-year-old striker moved on to 13 goals for the season, with eight of them coming in 2015, following his appearance in Sunday (15/3) 2-0 Serie A defeat on Napoli.
The veteran striker pounced after seven minutes to power into the back of the net from close range after forcing his way into the Napoli box and rounding goalkeeper Mariano Andujar. For the second goal. Emil Hallfredson played an important part by providing the assist for the second six minutes goal, pulling the ball into the center of the penalty area from the left for Toni to guide it to the net.
Toni is highly regarded for his goal scoring ability, as can be seen by his prolific goals to games ratio at many of his clubs. His strength, aerial prowess, and power have seen him become one of the best ever headers of the ball in the Italian League. Luca Toni holds the Capocannonieri honors for the 2005-2006 season in which he scored 31 goals; the most goals in Serie A season since 1958-59. And the latest’ match has taken him to 33 goals in total for Hellas, one more than club legend Preben Elkjaer and Emiliano Mascetti; while he has joined the company of Christian Vieri on 142 Serie A goals.
“I’ll be even happier if I manage to break Mascetti’s record, because numbers like that allow you to leave a mark,” the forward admitted, as it is quoted by La Gazzetta dello Sport. “But my priority is always the team. We are closer to safety now and we have got to keep fighting,” he continued.
Only Carlos Tevez and Mauro Icardi have scored more this season in Serie A, and in this kind of situation, there would be little reason for the former Fiorentina and Bayern Munich forward to hang up his boots in the summer. However, commenting about his own plan, he says that the ability to still score goals is not all that he will judge his future on.
Toni realizes that his age it takes a lot longer to recover from the efforts of a game, and he has not sure yet whether he is going to carry on or not. The most curtained thing for him is that in this summer he will go on holiday with his family, since it has been a while for them to go away together.
Right now, let me go home because I want to be with my family,” he said. “I’ll be delighted with them for this great win. We’ve emerged from a difficult period and we don’t want to go back there.”
