Peter Couch announces his Retirement

July 12, 2019, Peter Crouch announces his retirement from football today on

#Twitter saying, “After a lot of deliberation this summer I have decided to retire from football !

Our wonderful game has given me everything.

I’m so thankful to everyone who helped me get there and to help me stay there for so long. X”

The 38 year old dedicated 21 years to the beautiful game scoring over 200 goals in his career playing for several Premier League teams including Tottenham Hotspur, QPR, Portsmouth, Aston Villa, Southampton, Liverpool, Stoke City and finishing his career at Burnley in May of 2019.

The 6’ 7” striker signed for #LiverpoolFC in July 2005. During his three seasons with the Mighty Reds, Crouch made 134 appearances, scoring 42 goals, winning FA Cup (2006), FA Community Shield (2006) and a runner‘s up metal in the UEFA Champions League Final in Athens against AC Milan (2007).

The English International also received 42 Caps for his country scoring 22 goals and appearing in 2 World Cups.

I’ve always liked him as a player and loved his sense of humour.

I still can’t help but sing his song...

He’s BIG

He’s RED 🔴

His feet stick out of the bed 🛏


I remember walking of several flights of stairs in the way end of Sunderland‘s Stadium of Light on January 2, 2017 and stopping on a flight of stairs as I saw “Nine small steps for man...

One norm step for Peter Crouch.” I had to stop and take a photo as it put a huge smile on my face.

Happy Retirement Crouchy!
