One of football’s greatest characters has decided to call it a day as Jimmy Bullard retires from football at the age of 33.
All of us loved watching Bullard’s antics on and off the pitch but there is no denying his career has been tampered and cut short through injuries.
A ruptured cruciate ligament in his knee in 2006 has plagued the midfielder and he has admitted that he has never fully recovered.
Bullard made his name playing for Wigan Athletic guiding the team from League One to the Premier League in his first three seasons at the club.
He would move on from the DW Stadium and play for Fulham, Hull City, Ipswich Town and finally calling it a day with Milton Keynes Dons.
He may not have been the worlds greatest footballer or won many trophies but no-one can deny that he had great banter.
Whether it was leapfrogging a crowd of players or trying to avoid the wrath of big bad Scot Duncan Ferguson we will never forget Bullard.
