Ex-Man Utd, Spurs hero Sheringham announces retirement
March 01, 2008
Former England striker Teddy Sheringham has announced that he will retire at the end of the season following a career spanning 26 years.
The 41-year-old, who won 51 caps for his country, will see out the rest of the campaign with Championship Colchester before hanging up his boots.
Sheringham had two stints with Tottenham and played for six other clubs - famously helping Manchester United win the Champions League in 1999 - in a career spanning 26 years.
Sheringham said: "After a long and fun-filled career I have decided that this season will be my last.
"I've had a fantastic time and want to thank all those that have contributed to my career and helped me along the way.
"I've no immediate thoughts about going into management but football has always been my life and hopefully I will be back at some point in the future.
"Until then I have to try and help Colchester United stay in the Championship."
Sheringham agreed a one-year deal with Colchester after being released by West Ham last summer.
Legend, lasted so long in the game because of his great footballing brain!
