Feesh no more

Charlton defender Mark Fish has retired from the professional game after a career that took him to the 1998 World Cup in France. The 31 year old South African has decided to bring his career to an end because of a persistent knee injury that has been bothering him for a few seasons.

'I can no longer play to the standards I have set myself and therefore I feel it is time to move on', Fish declared. He had been out on loan to Ipswich Town, but had to be substituted in the game against QPR.

A popular figure at Charlton, even though he had slowed down in the last year, Feesh is also known for his glamorous ex-model wife, his serious interest in red wine and the fact that he is a half decent poet. He has often speculated about entering politics in his native country from whom he won 62 international caps.
