Bullard hangs up boots

Published Add your comment

Jimmy Bullard has announced his retirement from football with immediate effect.

The midfielder has called time on his 14-year playing career due to ongoing problems with a troublesome knee injury. Bullard ruptured the cruciate ligaments in his knee twice in three years - at Fulham and again on his debut for Hull in 2009.

The 33-year-old visited a consultant last week and after not receiving the news he had hoped for, has decided to hang up his boots. "My old knee injury has never allowed me to get back to where I want to be as a football player; it's always hindered me," said Bullard via a statement through his current club MK Dons.
