Peruzzi to finish season with Lazio

Peruzzi to finish season with Lazio

Lazio goalkeeper Angelo Peruzzi will play the final four games of the season with the Roman club, coach Delio Rossi said Wednesday.
Peruzzi had announced he was retiring immediately following a 0-0 draw with AS Roma in the Roman derby Sunday.
"From here until the end of the season he will play," Rossi said. "Against Roma, he made a save in the last minute on (Mirko) Vucinic and his finger was really hurting, so in the heat of the moment he said those things."
Rossi and club owner Claudio Lotito are hoping Peruzzi plays one more season, especially since it looks as if the team will qualify for the European Champions League next season.
Lazio hosts Livorno on Sunday.
