The future of Lazio hitman Miroslav Klose has been thrown into doubt after the striker admitted that his future will be decided in the next few weeks. He is out of contract at the end of the campaign, but is one of the deadliest strikers in the world, he is definitely in demand. The German international is very close to beating the record of Brazil striker Ronaldo for the most number of goals scored in World Cup finals. He is intent on getting this record at the upcoming World Cup 2014, which would also be his final major tournament with Germany.
Since coming to Italian football with Lazio, Klose has been a regular first-team player whenever he has been fit. The 35-year-old is coming to the end of his career, which has sparked speculation that he may return to Germany or even try a stint in MLS. Despite rumours about retirement at the end of the campaign, Klose has said that he feels that he still has a lot to offer to the game even at this age. It is quite conceivable that he may play in Germany for another year before moving to MLS. As far as international career is concerned, he plans to announce his retirement after the World Cup.
“I can still play at a high level for two or three more years. I thank God that there are so many interesting options there for me. There are so many false rumours that have gone around, what is certain is that I want to continue playing at a high level. I think that the World Cup in Brazil will be my last international tournament,” said the striker. Klose has been playing for Lazio since 2011. He has scored 40 goals in 97 appearances for the Italian team.
