Yesterday Roby returned to Florence to attend his brother Eddy's wedding ceremony, and before the ceremony began he had a chat with the press about his future. According to Giornale di Brescia and Datasport, Roby said "I have spoken with coach De Biasi, but I'm not going to reveal what we talked about. And I will respect the contract I have (with Brescia), and stay with the team until the end of next season when the contract term ends. If I decide to retire I will cut the tie and leave the world of soccer. After so many years in this career it is time to give myself a chance for other things."
