Curtis Davies Worried Great Dane Might Retire
Short and not so sweet this one.
Curtis Davies has added to the whispers that Martin Laursen might be having to consider retiring.
We can - like the team - only hope and pray that it doesn't come to that, just look what a blow it has proved to be this season, with him we were solid him, without him the defence has become a shambles at times.
Davies told the The Mirror :
'If he has to retire, it will be a massive blow for him and the team. He’s been trying his best to get things sorted and hopefully he can come back again next season. He’s the captain and is a big, solid figure for us. He’s a presence in both boxes – scoring goals, clearing balls. He’s an old school centre half and maybe if we had that side to us against West Ham we would have won.'
If he has to retire and as expected Gareth Barry leaves this summer, that will be our 'world class' contingent gone in one swoop, hopefully Martin O'Neill will be able to defy the odds and have a tip top transfer window in preparation for next season... gulp!
