Wolfsburg striker Ivica Olic has outlined his plans for the coming season by claiming he will quit the club, and the Bundesliga next summer to go an close the curtains on his career in another country, Sky Sports reports.

The 33-year-old is now in the final year of his current deal at the Volkswagen Arena and doesn’t expect to sign an extension beyond that, instead, he plans on waving goodbye to German football altogether by finishing his distinguished career in another country.

“This is probably my last year in the Bundesliga,” he told Sports Bild magazine.

“If my body allows it and I am still fit, then maybe I will play on for a year in the USA or in Dubai after my Bundesliga career.”

The Croatian international was a part of the Bayern Munich side that won the Bundesliga back in 2010, and sadly twice suffered defeat in the Champions League final whilst with the Bavarian giants.

Olic first established himself in Germany with Hamburg in 2007, where he scored 96 goals in 111 appearances to earn a move to Bayern. Before that he helped Russian giants CSKA Moscow lift the UEFA Cup in 2005 whilst he has also collected an impressive 85 caps for the Croatian national side.
