Ex-France and Arsenal star Pires retires

PARIS, February 25 – Former France midfielder Robert Pires finally announced his retirement from football on Thursday.

The 42-year-old is the last of France’s 1998 World Cup winners to hang up his boots, having most recently played for Indian Super League outfit FC Goa in the 2014-15 season.

Pires was also part of the French side that won Euro 2000, and whilst at English club Arsenal he won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups.

“I’m 42 years old so must stop at some point, we must say stop and give way to younger players,” Pires, who has been a free agent for the last year, said.
