David Meyler Announces Retirement From Football
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

David Meyler has confirmed he has retired from professional football after struggling with a prolonged knee injury issue.

The Corkman played for the Republic of Ireland 26 times and was handed the captains armband on several occasions under Martin O'Neill. He spent the bulk of his playing days with Hull City while also playing for Cork City, Sunderland, Hull City, Reading and Coventry City.

Writing on social media, the 30-year-old confirmed the news.

After a few hard days of thinking I have decided to retire from playing professional football. The injuries I sustained to my right knee have eventually caught up with me and I am left with no other option. It’s tough to take but I know deep down it’s the correct decision.


He finishes with over 100 Premier League appearances, having played in an FA Cup final, the Europa League and captaining his country.
