Former Gunner Philippe Senderos has announced his retirement from football.
The 34 year old joined Arsenal in 2003, and was in the team that beat Man Utd in the FA Cup final in 2005.
Arriving in North London ahead of other options like Real Madrid, his career began in promising fashion, but injuries meant he never fulfilled the potential Arsene Wenger saw in him.
After loan spells at AC Milan and Everton, he left permanently in 2010, joining Fulham where he spent four injury hit years.
After that he played for Valencia, Aston Villa, Grasshoppers, Rangers, and spent time with Houston Dynamo in MLS before finishing up at FC Chiasso in his native country. He also won 57 caps for Switzerland, and played at three World Cups.

He remains best known for his time at Arsenal though, and last year I spoke to him on the Arsecast about his life, career and his time at a club which he still holds very fondly in his heart.
Have a listen.
