In a statement on his website, the former West Ham midfielder admitted he had reached the decision due to a persistent knee injury which has dogged his career since his early days as a professional.

...the time has finally come to say, enough is enough, and admit my body can no longer cope with the demands of modern day football. The nights where I wake up in pain, or the mornings where I struggle to walk will be a constant reminder that I was lucky enough to play the game I love. That I put my body on the line time and time again to live out my dreams in front of the world.

– Jack Collison
