Sydney captain Corica announces retirement

Sydney FC skipper and former Australia international Steve Corica will bring the curtain down on a career spanning 21 years after today confirming his decision to retire at the end of the current A-League season.

The 36-year-old will play his last game in this weekend's crunch match with league leaders Melbourne Victory, which will determine who finishes top of the 2009-10 A-League table.

Having played over 100 games for Sydney, Corica also enjoyed success overseas with Leicester, Wolves and Walsall in England and Sanfrecce Hiroshima in Japan.

"My body probably could go for another year but I want to finish on good note and I have done that,'' he said. "I have played well this season and so has the team.

"I have a great chance to finish on a winning note, especially with this weekend's game and the upcoming finals. The reason I did it today is so I can give the fans a chance to see me play.

"I want to thank the fans for their support. I have a great relationship with them and want to see them get behind us on Sunday. They have been fantastic to me.''

Having made his international debut in 1993, Corica was part of a group of Australia players dubbed the "Golden Generation'' along with the likes of Mark Bosnich and Paul Okon.

The midfielder went on to earn over 40 caps for the Socceroos and ranked his international career as memorable as his match-winning strike that secured the inaugural A-League title for Sydney in the 2005/06 season.

"The goal I scored in the 2005 A-League Grand Final is one of the greatest moments of my career,'' added Corica. "It is alongside playing for Australia, in particular at two Olympic Games.

"Playing overseas was a wonderful experience and is for any player. There were many highs and some lows in my career, like when I missed 15 months of football when I was playing with Wolverhampton with knee injuries but that is part of the game.

"My time in Japan was one of the best experiences of my career. I scored a lot of goals and it was great to experience a different style of football. It really was two of the best years of my career.''

Corica will remain at Sydney FC to take up a coaching role with the club from next season.
