Christian Vieri to come out of retirement and play in China

Former Italy international striker Christian Vieri has announced his intention to come out of retirement and play in China.

Vieri, 43, retired in October 2009, after a long career that saw him play for Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Lazio and Inter Milan among others.

“Good morning everyone. At more or less 8:30a.m., there’s huge news on the Formentera broadcast: Bobo is back, I’ve decided to go play in China,” he said on his official Instagram page.

“Five months ago I weighed 101kg, now I’m at 91kg, I’ve lost 10. I must drop another two, reach 89kg and I’m ready. Have a nice day.”

In 1999 he became the most expensive player in the world when he joined Inter from Lazio for a fee of £32.1 million.

Vieri would be the latest high-profile player to move to China, following Graziano Pelle, Hulk and Ramires.
