Former Brazil striker Romario said on Wednesday he was considering a possible return to his first club Vasco da Gama despite a newspaper report that he had decided to retire.
"I want to make it quite clear that I'm not going to stop playing," Romario told reporters. "All I said was that I didn't really feel like playing. I've got an offer from Vasco and I'll see what I'm going to do."
Romario, 38, was sacked by Fluminense in October.
The Rio de Janeiro newspaper O Globo ran a report on Tuesday briefly quoting Romario as saying that he had decided to end his career.
Fluminense fired Romario after a season during which he struggled for match fitness and repeatedly clashed with his coaches.
