Ablett's manager responds to retirement rumours


//

Gary Ablett's manager has rubbished speculation that the Geelong superstar is definitely set to call it quits at the end of a stellar 2019 season.

Ablett is out of contract at the end of the season, and as a result his future has been hotly debated, with Geelong reportedly chasing the likes of North Melbourne's Shaun Higgins and St Kilda's Jack Steven.

However, speaking on SEN Breakfast, Ablett's manager Liam Pickering denied claims that the two-time Brownlow Medallist was going to call it a day.

"That's news to me," he said.

"I actually don't know. That's the honest truth.

"I think the finals will determine what Gary Ablett does next year. I hope he plays on. I think he's got a couple of years left in him.

"I mean, he's marching towards another All-Australian year I would've thought.

"I would think, based on what we've seen this year, he has had another fabulous year. There's not too many 35-year-old All-Australians running around out there."

Ablett is in line to be selected to a record ninth All-Australian team having been named in the preliminary squad of 40.

He is currently tied with Sydney's Lance Franklin as well as Robert Harvey and Mark Ricciuto as the only players to make eight All-Australian teams.

The 35-year-old is one of six Cats in the squad alongside Patrick Dangerfield, Tim Kelly, Tom Hawkins, Tom Stewart and Mark Blicavs.
