Trying to improve my quality of life and meet the demands of playing and training for football at the elite level continues to be a struggle. My health and football have come to feel like competing priorities, which is not a position that is helping or enabling me to meet my responsibilities.
I have been trying to meet this challenge for a number of years but, with a series of debilitating recent injuries and my mental health a work in progress, I have reached a point where I know that stepping away from football is necessary.
(moreover) I want to thank all who have supported me and my family. I look forward to a brighter future.
