Former England, Manchester United and Everton midfielder Phil Neville has retired.
The 36-year-old has enjoyed a glittering career, having won the UEFA Champions League and six Premier League titles with United before going on to captain Everton in the latter stages of his career.
Neville admitted earlier that he was set to leave the Toffees but has now confirmed that he will not be playing for another club.
"I was speaking to Robbie Fowler about this the other week and he hasn't officially retired," Neville said.
"Three weeks ago, everyone in the world seemed to be retiring. I thought 'I'm not jumping on this bandwagon'.
"I just wanted it to be a smooth, quiet turnover. I didn't want that.
"When I made a statement that I was leaving Everton, everywhere I went I seemed to be getting 'oh you've been brilliant'. I didn't like it. I didn't want to be seen as an attention-seeker.
"In my heart, I knew that I wouldn't be playing again - at any level. I just wanted to drift away.
"The biggest thing I will miss is July 4 when Everton are due back for pre-season training. I loved that day. I lived for it, getting back with the lads.
"My wife, she knows what I'm like. She's saying 'for God's sake, don't have any more time off!'"
