Peggy Kuznik announces retirement

Peggy Kuznik announces retirement at the end of the season at 35 years of age.
Fifth on the all-time Frauen Bundesliga appearances list, the FC Köln captain decided to hang up her boots. Across 20 years in the top flight of German Women’s football, Kuznik played for Turbine Potsdam, Lokomotive Leizpzig, Bad Neuenahr, Vfl Wolfsburg, 1. FFC Frankfurt and FC Köln since 2017. The German midfielder won the Women’s Champion’s League in 2005 and became German champion with Turbine Potsdam. With a total of 307 appearances in Frauen Bundesliga, she will go down as one of the longest-serving players in the league.
“I would never have dreamed that I would play so many games in the Bundesliga. I am proud and very grateful to have been a part of the Bundesliga for 20 years. However, it was always important to me that I was happy to determine my own departure and not be forced to end my career through injury or no longer be able to keep up. I wanted to quit at a time when I was still a regular player and could help my team. Today, I can say that I couldn’t have picked a better time and a better club to end my professional career. FC has grown incredibly close to my heart over the past five years and we achieved our big goal this season. Now I’m looking forward to new challenges – which ones will be decided in the next few weeks. I can’t leave soccer completely, I love the sport too much for that, but the home game against Freiburg will be my last Bundesliga game,” said Kuznik for the club’s website.
