Footballing Legend Jimmy Bullard Announces His Retirement

MK Dons midfielder calls it a day.

MK Dons midfielder Jimmy Bullard has retired at the age of 33.

The former Wigan, Fulham, Hull and Ipswich player suffered two cruciate knee ligament injuries during his career and has decided to quit the game after seeing a specialist.

He joined the Dons in the summer on a short-term deal and featured three times for the League One club.

“My old knee injury has never allowed me to get back to where I want to be as a football player,” he said.

“It’s always hindered me. There are a lot of games in this league and I now know my knee won’t allow me to play Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday-Tuesday. It’s not built for that now.


We take a look back at some of Bullard’s finest moments.

And in case you forgot he was a footballer, a cracking strike against Arsenal for Wigan.
