Today is one of the saddest days for many people including myself. The reason being one of the greatest, strongest football player Michael Ballack is retiring. He went through many rough patches through his career but always managed to get back up whenever he was knocked down. No matter what happened he was still respected by many. When one of your favourite players retires, watching football doesnt seem the same doesnt it? Just like many older players he feels that its his time to quit and move on, hes still young he has many oppourtunities in life and he is able to fufill anything that he wishes. I only wish the best for this man.
