Svensson hangs his boots up

Svensson hangs his boots up

Michael Svensson has decided to retire after serving seven years at Southampton FC.

The commanding centre back was forced to make this decision after having a battle with a disastrous knee injury.

Last year, 'Killer' adopted a coaching role at St. Mary's, and the Swede's decision to retire means he can focus on his coaching position.

Svensson came to St. Mary's from Troyes for £2 million in 2002, and became an instant fan's' favourite, helping the side reach the F.A Cup final in 2003.
