At the age of 36, Gabriel Batistuta has finally called it quits.

Batigol singlehandedly took Fiorentina to new heights and helped Roma win the Scudetto which is something they had not done in ages.

He scored 355 career goals, with 56 of those for the national team (tops for anyone in the NT I believe.

Grande Bati!

..did you have a hard time to find that pic? hurts no?..que no sea amargo y se mande un partido como se merece, y no de golf...When I remember his shots, he makes look actual players my grandma, Bati=Power, is certainly miss, how many times I wish he had Gallardo, Aimar, Roman, Saviola, backing him, that could be something, I will never forgive Passarella and Bielsa for that.

FangioI wish he had Gallardo said:
And Tevez.......we only can blame the luck and Passa with Bielsa, a player like wasted his career without winning a major trophy which is a WC:(

There's news about him that he will join a club in my country where he will work for the Academy for the youth (he might be the chief for it or a trainer), he has many friends here which he enjoy's playing Polo with them and go sailing, I heard that he want to buy a house in Dubai in the Palm Island, plus a huge boat.

Here's the latest pic of him visiting the UAE last month, my friend took that pic in Dubai's airport, he came to play Polo.

What a legend he was and still is.

My fondest Batistuta memory: I was with my then girlfriend at the time. I think it was Roma vs Parma we were watching, and Roma had the free-kick. Needless to say Batigol stepped up. I said to her "He's going to score this. Mark my words, it's in already". She wasn't too interested! But sure enough, up he stepped, slammed it into the top right as only Batistuta can :) What a striker. I went wild

Good luck with whatever you do next Gabriel. The best striker of your generation.

GRANDE BATI!
