Asia loses a legend as Karimi retires

Ali Karimi has finally hung up his boots after a fine career.

Not many football players were mentioned by name in those diplomatic cables released to the world by WikiLeaks a few years ago but Ali Karimi was. Even Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad found the time to get involved in the career of the man they called 'The Wizard Of Tehran" who finally pocketed his wand and hung up his boots earlier this week.

Japan also didn't...
