Former Tottenham Hotspur And England Winger Lennon Announces Retirement. Aaron Lennon, a former winger for England and Tottenham Hotspur, declared on Tuesday that he will be hanging up his football boots.
The 35-year-old, who has also played for Everton, Leeds, and Burnley, parted ways with the Clarets once more when his contract ran out at the conclusion of the previous campaign. Lennon, who has received 21 caps for England, has now decided to end his career after not obtaining what he considered to be a worthwhile offer to play on.
“I’ve finally decided that the time is right to hang my boots up, having weighed up my options I didn’t feel any were right for me and my young family,” Lennon wrote on Twitter.
“It has been a very tough decision as football has been my life since probably the age of three and the last 20 years playing professionally at the very top has been so amazing. Football means so much to me and always will do. I don’t think I even realised how much until I started considering this retirement,it has been everything and more.”

He added: “Now I’m very excited for this next chapter in my life and spending a lot more time with my loved ones. There is so much (I) want to do and give back with all my experience and experiences on and off the pitch and will be doing so in the near future. Football world thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
