If you meant retire from a more competitive level, then after 9 op's in my last 6 years, the last a total achillies rupture, finished the game for me as 6 months off work was the final straw at 39, some 6 years ago now. However, i still love football, continued to coach and manage but even thats finished for me now, mainly in part to players attitudes. If i was honest and my current situation allowed i'd still play every week...so in one of my short ways to answer a question, i don't know!
