Ballack calls it a day

Ballack calls it a day
Former German captain Michael Ballack announced his retirement on Tuesday bringing the curtain down on a stellar career.

Having turned 36 at the end of last month, Ballack has been without a team after his two-year deal at Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen expired in June.

Since leaving Leverkusen, Ballack had been reported to be negotiating with clubs in north America’s MSL and Australia’s A-League, but has decided to hang up his boots.

“At 36 years of age, I can look back on a long and wonderful time in professional football, which I could never have dreamed of as a child,” he said in a statement.

“It was a privilege to have worked with world-class coaches and fantastic players. Of course, I will miss playing or scoring a goal in front of 80,000 fans, but it is time to draw the curtains.’
