Veteran AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini has played down rumours he will announce his retirement following the FIFA Club World Cup.

Maldini arrived in Japan with his Milan team-mates on Thursday as they prepare for the semi-finals of the competition, but he denied suggestions that he would hang up his boots upon the competition´s completion next Sunday.

"I have a contract until August 2008," said the 39-year-old. "I´m in very good condition right now so I will not abandon the contract in the meantime."
