My Love Affair With The Beautiful Game

In 2010 I ended my love affair with the beautiful game and hung up my Adidas World Cups after what I thought was going to be my last game of football ever (how very dramatic of me). My 20 year relationship with football has seen me play for 16 different clubs, play over 700 games, rack up about 200 yellow cards (no reds, yet) and make more friends than a man could ever want, but without doubt, a lot more enemies. Football isn’t just a sport, it unites people, it forms unbreakable bonds and creates memories that we will reminisce about long after our legs have given up on us.
