Nesta set to retire at the end of MLS season
According to Calciomercato.com, the Major League Soccer side put together a video package to honour the veteran’s career before their last home game of the regular season against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday, which they won 2-1.
Marco Di Vaio, fellow Italian and a teammate of Nesta’s at the Canadian side, spoke about the defender and praised him for his talent and success.
“Alessandro is one of the best defenders in the world,” said the former Bologna striker, who’s 37-years-old as well.
“He’s a champion and a true friend. I’m proud to have played by his side.
“We’re sad that he’s retiring, but I think he’ll continue to work in the world of football.”
