Mido announces retirement

Former Egypt international Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam has brought the curtain down on his footballing career at the age of just 30

Former Tottenham, Ajax and Roma striker Mido has announced his retirement from professional football.

Mido, 30, spent last season at Championship side Barnsley but only made one appearance for the club before being released by mutual consent in January and has failed to find a club since.

His career has taken in spells in seven countries and seen him earn 51 international caps for Egypt, scoring 20 goals.

He announced the news via his official Twitter account, where he said: "Today I announce that I'm quitting football. I want to thank all those who supported me during my football career, especially Egypt fans."

The striker is perhaps best known for his time in the Premier League with Tottenham, and especially the 2005-06 campaign where he scored 11 goals as the club narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification.
