Former United player Teddy Sheringham has
announced he will retire at the end of the season.
He currently plays in the Championship for Colchester
and will turn 42 next month.

He is fondly remembered by United fans for the goal
he scored against Bayern Munich in the famous
European Cup Final in 1999.

Sheringham added: "I've no immediate thoughts
about going into management but football has
always been my life and hopefully I will be back
at some point in the future.

"Until then I have to try and help Colchester United
stay in the Championship."

Thanks for the good memories Teddy and good luck.

I didn't know that this thread would be so unpopular.....totally unexpected!! He's a legend for both United & Spurs but none of ue didn't even bother to post a R.I.P (Retire In Peace) appreciation for him......I'm flabbergasted & disappointed.....:( :( :(

Apart from 'Giggs with the shot...SHERINGHAM!' he came on for an injured Roy Keane in the FA Cup Final and scored the opener that year. I think he only scored a few goals that season but boy were they important!!!

He formed a great partnership with Shearer for England too. I'll always remember his role in our 4-1 demolition of Holland at Euro 96.

Sheringham has won so much in the game and to keep playing into his early 40's is an achievement in itself. A shame that a great player will be hanging up his boots but I think it's fair to say he deserves a rest!

Knowing he play somewhere else and him retiring is two different feeling. He amazed me how he can still play at the age of 35 years old and still scoring goals. What a great legend, the player we bought to replace Cantona and whom many doubted with on his first year, he live on untill that unforgetable night at Nou Camp and make his name among the many legends we have at Old Trafford. Im honoured to have his name part of our great history and with this decision, i wish him all the best in whatever he do in the remaining part of his life. Certainly now, he can sit back and look back at the trophies he have won and look back at the good time he had. Thank You Teddy, he will never be forgotten!

And so young :(

I guess he has never heard of Chris Chelios, who is still playing at the age of 46 in the NHL.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Teddy in a prominent manager role in a few years. HE just strikes me as the kind of person who would succeed in coaching.
