Former Lazio striker announces retirement
The 35-year-old was only with the Biancocelesti for a short time last season, having been signed to the Italian club from Sunderland with a six-month contract in early February of this year.
Saha revealed his decision to retire on his official Twitter account on Thursday.
“I will stop being called a professional footballer,” he wrote.
“I wish that the young talent enjoy their football as much as I did. Love you and thanks.
“I want to thank all my managers, all staff, all team-mates, all opponents, all fans for their love and support during my career.
“I’m a proud man but without you all I won’t be myself now. Thanks for the challenges, thanks for the help, thanks for the memories, and thanks for the passion.”
Louis Saha only made six appearances during his time at Lazio and failed to score for the club, but has made his mark at other clubs throughout his career including Fulham, Manchester United, and Everton.
