Former England midfielder, Danny Drinkwater, has announced his retirement from professional football at the age of 33.
The Premier League title winner with Leicester City moved to Chelsea but played only a bit-part role and has decided to hang up his boots having been “in limbo too long” following his release from there last year, Daily Mail reports Monday.
The 33-year-old said, “I’d just like to announce my retirement from professional football. It’s probably been a long time coming, especially with the last year, but I think it’s time to officially announce it now.
“I didn’t think it would bother me, but saying it then it’s almost like scratching a nerve a bit. I think I’ve been ready for it, not stopping at my peak, and it’s simmered down a bit. that’s helped the transition.
