Through a letter posted on his social networks, it is how the Welshman communicated to the public his decision to leave football, to venture into other activities.
I thank all those I have had the opportunity to play with and without whom I could not have achieved anything of what I have. Also to all my clubs Southampton, Tottenham, Real Madrid and Los Angeles and to all my managers and coaches, teammates and people of the technical staff whose contribution to my career is impossible to measure.
