DERBY: Derby County’s Italian striker Fabrizio Ravanelli would play for free next season if it was in the best interests of the English First Division club.
The 34-year-old, who is out of contract at the end of the current campaign, has told the club’s official website that money is not important and playing is his main priority.
“Maybe I will play for free,” Ravanelli was quoted as saying on Monday.
“The money is not important to me – staying in Derby is because it would be good for me and my family, who are very settled here.
“If the chairman, the manager and the fans want me to stay in Derby then I will,” the former Juventus and Lazio forward added.
“I feel fit and well but I want to continue working very hard because I love Derby County, I love the city and I love the fans.
Cash-strapped Derby, who have had to sell many of their best players this season to cut the wage bill, are only two places above the relegation zone. – Reuters
