Nice striker Dario Cvitanich has cast doubt on his future at the club after the stalled progress of contract talks.

Even though he only joined the Mediterranean club last year and is under contract until 2015, Cvitanich, 29, claims the Nice hierarchy promised him a new and improved deal back in January but have so far failed to deliver.
Cvitanich made an instant impression after joining from Ajax last July and finished the season with 19 goals, in the process helping Nice into Europe on the back of a fine fourth-placed finish.
Yet the relationship is in danger of turning sour, with Cvitanich, currently on holiday in his home town of Buenos Aires, unhappy over the stalled talks.
"They promised me a lot of things in January and did not necessarily behave well with me," the Argentinian said in L'Equipe.
"To be honest, I do not know what will happen. I'm in Argentina and I think about what I'll do.
"I am far away and I'm still waiting for that phone call from Nice.
"The situation bothers me. I would like to start pre-season with confidence."
Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere is not fazed by the situation however, saying recently: "It's up to us to decide. He is under contract."
