Martin Laursen retired

Aston Villa skipper Martin Laursen has announced his retirement because of persistent injuries.The 31-year-old defender has endured an injury-plagued career and has been out of action since suffering a knee injury while playing for Villa in January. Laursen was faced with a lengthy rehabilitation period on his right knee before he would return to full fitness and has opted to retire rather than undergo another major operation.

The 31-year-old's retirement will leave a huge void to fill in the Villa defence as he has been one of the club's most consistent performers in recent seasons.
