Thuram announces retirement


Lillian Thuram announces retirement.



French defender Thuram has announced his retirement from the game.

This announcement comes after he was discovered to be suffering from a cardiac malformation during the month of June ahead of a prospective move to PSG.

Thuram had this to say in Parc des Princes,
"There are family reasons which have also been taken into account.

"I wanted to be the (Paolo) Maldini of PSG but that has not been possible. It's sad to end a career like this."


Thuram had been a player of Barcelona last season and was on the verge of signing for Paris Saint Germain but this decision would highly sadden the PSG fans and football fans all over as we see a great defender bowing out on a sad note.
