New Zealand world cup winner Dan Carter future at his Top14 club Racing Metro is uncertain, reports NZHerald
A coach at Racing has said that Carter’s future is unclear as the form All Black last month said that he wants to bring his family home once his stint at Racing ends.
Racing Metro co-trainer Laurent Labit has told Le Parisien that Carter’s recent injury woes leave him uncertain to play an extra year.
“He’s thinking right now,” says co-trainer Laurent Labit. Will he sign for another year? We do not know it yet. He will only do it if he is sure that his body is following. “
Carter helped his club winning their first TOP14 title in 26 years and fell just sort against Saracens in the Champions Cup final.
“I’m kind of going through those thoughts at the moment – whether I stay or whether I look at other opportunities,” Carter told Radio Sport’s Martin Devlin last month.
“Home, New Zealand, is where the family is and that’s a big part of my life. My personal family, my two boys and beautiful wife, they’ve sacrificed a lot coming over to the other side of the world to be with me so it would be nice to return the favour one day and move back to New Zealand so they’re able to spend time with our families; spend time with their cousins and have the same upbringing we did.
“They’re decisions I’m weighing at the moment. I’m not young and single anymore thinking about yourself and where you’re going to be playing next and where next pay cheque will be. You’ve got to start putting your family first and that’s one of my biggest priorities at the moment.”
