Copenhagen - Danish midfielder Thomas Gravesen has decided to retire, he said in published remarks Tuesday.
"I have had fantastic years abroad, and there are many I want to thank," Gravesen said in a statement published by the Vejle Amts Folkeblad newspaper.
"If I had the chance, I would have done it again," he added.
Recently, there had been speculation that Gravesen would make a comeback with his former club Vejle Boldklub.
"I am 32, and turn 33 in March, so before age and health decide it for me, I wanted to call it quits myself," Gravesen said.
