Top 40 Footballers Who Retired Too Early (+Photos)

The world of professional soccer requires players to be at the top of their game all the time.

Many football players who seem to be in their prime chose to retire early rather than lose some of their edge in competition.

However, others decided to quit because they’ve lost the love of the game, personal circumstance, or are forced to stop playing because of injuries.

But as we all know, the average age for retirement in the game of football for professional soccer players is thirty-five years, though the rule is not often implemented in football, as many players still remains in their peak physical form and can play long after that.

In this article, I have compiled list of 40 players who retired earlier from football.
