Frings to hang up his boots

Werder Bremen midfielder Torsten Frings has announced his intention to retire from the game in the summer.

The former Germany international is out of contract at the end of June and he has made up his mind not to seek an extension but, instead, to hang up his boots for good.

"I will be 35,'' he told the Kreiszeitung Syke newspaper. "I don't want to carry on, I have had enough.''

He could yet be talked into playing for another year if he feels Bremen really want him to keep playing for them, but he rates the chances of that happening as slim.

"We will hold some talks so my decision is not yet 100% certain, but there is a clear tendency towards retiring,'' he added.

"I have been thinking long and hard about this. People keep on asking me whether I will be staying or not.''

Frings has played a total of 392 Bundesliga matches for Bremen, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund and was capped 79 times by Germany.

He was suspended for Sunday's 2-2 draw with Bayer Leverkusen, but has otherwise been a regular in the Bremen team this season.
