Keeper Teddy Richert, 38, retires
Sochaux goalkeeper Teddy Richert announced his retirement from soccer Tuesday at the age of 38.
Richert represented Les Lionceaux almost 300 times in a 10-year spell with the Montbeliard outfit.
"I've decided to stop, I think I've given a lot and taken a lot too," he told L'Equipe. "But this is the right time.
"I've played for a lot of years at a high level and fatigue has set in."
Having started his career with Toulouse, Richert joined Sochaux in 2002 and was named Ligue 1 goalkeeper of the year as Sochaux won the Coupe de France in 2007.
