Phoenix skipper Andrew Durante undecided over playing future: 'I haven't ruled anything out'

Wellington Phoenix captain Andrew Durante says he's undecided on his playing future, approaching the end of what could be his final season in the A-League.

Beginning his career in 2001 before moving to the Phoenix in 2008, Durante is the A-League's most capped player, arguably playing his best football this year under Mark Rudan, with the Nix on the verge of a first play-off appearance since 2015.

The veteran defender had initially planned on retiring at the end of the 2017/18 campaign, however was convinced by Rudan to play another year as the Phoenix looked to rebuild from a disastrous season.

Speaking to media ahead of tomorrow's clash with Melbourne City, Durante opened up about the prospect of hanging up his boots.

"I haven't ruled out anything and I won't rule out anything," Durante said.

"When the season ends I want to look at all opportunities both as a player and not a player, staying in football and not staying in football, just get it all together and make a clear decision.

"Sometimes I feel like I've had a good career and I'm done and then other days I feel like my body is good and I'm performing well and maybe I can go around again."

Durante has played the most minutes of any Phoenix player this season with 2099, only striker Roy Krishna (2086) and defender Liberato Cacace (2048) coming close.
