Gaddafi set to quit Udinese

Al Saadi Gaddafi's Italian football career, which has included just one Serie A match, looks set to end.

The son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has been offered a prestigious government position in his home country and is thinking very seriously of leaving Udinese, his spokesman, Gianluca Di Carlo, said Monday.

"He should decide in the next few days," Di Carlo said.

"It's not a soccer problem, it's a political problem. Udinese has always treated him very well."

Gaddafi has not played in any official matches since joining Udinese in June 2005, appearing in only a preseason friendly against Inter Milan.

His only Serie A appearance came with Perugia in 2003.

Gaddafi was suspended in November 2003 after testing positive for a performance-enhancing steroid.

He denied intentionally doping, saying medicine he took for back pain probably caused the positive result.

Di Carlo said Gaddafi has already been away from Udinese for two months.
