Premier League vet Kenwyne Jones retires at age 33
It wasn’t the season that Kenwyne Jones had expected in his first Major League Soccer season, but the veteran Trinidad & Tobago striker had himself quite the career.
Jones, 33, announced his retirement on Monday after boasting an extensive career in England prior to finishing up his playing with Atlanta United.
Atlanta opted not to renew Jones’ contract with the club after scoring twice in 17 appearances this season for the expansion side.
The Trinidadian posted the following message to supporters on Twitter this afternoon.
Jones spent nine seasons in the Premier League, including stints with Southampton, Stoke City and Sunderland.
Additionally, the forward played for Al Jazira from UAE in 2016 before moving on loan to Central in his native Trinidad prior to his arrival in Atlanta’s debut MLS season.
