Former Arsenal Star, Theo Walcott Retires From football

Ex-Arsenal and Southampton winger, Theo Walcott, has announced his retirement from football at 34 years old. The former English national player revealed his choice through a heartfelt video on his social media platform last Friday.

He said in a voiceover attached to the video, “The first moment I put my football boots on aged 10 was a special journey for me. From playing in the park with friends to performing in some of the biggest stadiums in front of huge crowds across the world.

“The support shown to me throughout this time has been incredible and in every way imaginable I am truly grateful. I shared the football pitch with so many incredible players and we have created so many unforgettable memories.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to all the managers and coaches that I’ve worked with, especially Harry [Redknapp] for giving me a start and Arsene [Wenger] for showing the belief and supporting me when I joined the club at only 16 years old. Over 18 fantastic years in the Premier League, there are so many moments I will cherish.

“The early days at Southampton Football Club, my transfer to Arsenal where I spent 12 enjoyable years and scored over 100 goals, winning the FA Cup and scoring in the final which is every kid’s dream. To have had the opportunity to represent England 47 times and to go to the World Cup in 2006 aged just 17 and still to hold the record for the youngest-ever debut by a senior England player and the youngest hat-trick goalscorer at 19 – I will never forget that feeling.

“I’m lucky enough to have had offers to continue playing but it feels right to finish where I started and hang up my football boots. Thank you to everyone who has been with me along the way.”

Beginning his football journey at Southampton, Walcott later transferred to Arsenal in January 2006 for £5 million.

During his Arsenal tenure from 2006 to 2018, Walcott netted 65 goals. He then moved on to Everton, contributing 10 goals in 77 matches.

Following a loan stint from Everton, he rejoined Southampton, solidifying a permanent transfer in 2021.

Walcott showcased his national prowess for England at every tier, amassing 20 goals along the way.
