Villa's Defensive Rock Set To Retire
Looks like the news we all feared is about to become reality. Villa skipper and defensive rock Martin Laursen is set to announce his retirement at a press conference today.
The 31-year-old world class (and that isn't said lightly) defender has battled with career threatening knee injuries for several years and just when he thought he was over the problems after completing a full and magnificent season for Villa last year, he picked up another injury, this time in his other knee. Having undergone surgery and given it time to repair it looks like the advice is he could do serious harm if he tried to make yet another comeback.
I'm sure all our good wishes and thanks go to him.
