Crouch Retires From Football

Written 6 days ago by Sport Midlands

Former England striker Peter Crouch has announced his retirement from football.

The 6-foot-7-inch forward was released by Burnley at the end of the season – having had spells at Southampton, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Tottenham and Stoke among others.

Crouch says if you’d told him at 17 he’d play in World Cups, a Champions League final, win the FA Cup and get 100 Premier League goals he would have avoided you at all costs.

He says his career has been a dream come true.
