Jermaine Jenas announces retirment

Midfielder hasn’t played in nearly two years

Jermaine Jenas has officially announced his retirement from football after failing to recover from a serious knee injury.

The midfielder has been working as a pundit on BBC‘s Match of the Day, and although he initially had plans on returning to action, he has today decided to retire.

Jenas‘ last game came back in April 2014 when he featured for Queens Park Rangers, but after suffering a serious knee injury a month later, the 32-year-old failed to feature since.

The former-England international made over 400 appearances including spells with Nottingham Forest, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, as well as a loan spell at Aston Villa.

Retirement Confirmed

When asked about his future plans, Jenas said: “I have officially retired. I tried my best to come back from the knee injury but unfortunately that is the end of my career.”
