Former Chelsea midfielder, Danny Drinkwater, on Monday announced his retirement from football after admitting he had been “in limbo” too long.

 

 

Drinkwater was a regular in the Leicester City team that stunningly won the Premier League in 2016 but he moved to Chelsea a year later.

 

The English midfielder failed to establish himself at Chelsea and was sent for unsuccessful loan spells at Burnley and Aston Villa.

 

 

Speaking on The High-Performance Podcast, Drinkwater said: “It’s been a long time coming maybe, especially with the last year, but I think it’s time to officially announce it now.

 

“I think I have been in limbo for too long. I have been wanting to play but not getting the opportunity to play at a standard or a level where I felt valued.

 

“I’m happy not playing football but I’m happy playing football, so do I just shake hands with the sport?”
