Football: Chivu to end career with Inter

Inter Milan’s versatile defender Cristian Chivu wants to stay at the Serie A club for the rest of his career, Yahoo Sports reports.The Romanian international joined Inter from AS Roma for a reported fee of 16 million euros in 2007 and helped them to win league titles in 2008, 2009 and 2010 and the Champions League in 2010. “My future? At Inter!” the 32-year-old, capped 75 times by the national team, was quoted as saying in Italian media. “At least I hope so, if they don’t get rid of me!“I’m joking, I’m happy, really happy here and the club is happy with me,” added Chivu, who can play as a central defender, left back and defensive midfielder. “I’ll finish my career here.”Chivu, who has not played since Inter’s 3-0 win at Hajduk Split in the Europa League on Aug. 2 when he suffered a toe injury, was expected to return to action when his team hosted Verona in a Coppa Italia last-16 match on Tuesday night.“I feel good, the last four months were tough but I’m better now,” Chivu said. “There were complications which meant I needed a second operation but now I feel fit enough to help out.”  Inter defender believes his team can challenge Juventus for the title come May. The Romanian centre-back has claimed that the Nerazzurri have the players to take on Antonio Conte’s team in a title battle, and has also revealed his despair at missing the last four months through injury. “There are no limits to where this group of players can go. We can definitely fight for the Scudetto. If Juventus falter because of their Champions League commitments then we will be there to take advantage”, he told Inter Channel.
