Chung announces retirement from MLS
Veteran midfielder Mark Chung has announced his retirement from Major League Soccer, bringing to a close a long, successful career. Chung ended his career with the San Jose Earthquakes, spent time with four different clubs in the league and also represented the U.S. national team.
Chung was one of the most consistent performers in league history, beginning his MLS career with the Kansas City Wiz (now the Wizards) in 1996. Chung accumulated 61 career goals and 76 career assists, sitting just outside the top 10 all-time in the former category and ranking in the top 10 all-time in the latter. He is also among the all-time league leaders in games played, minutes played, shots, shots on goal and game-winning goals.
