Former Leeds defender Patrick Kisnorbo has announced his retirement from football.
Bloodied and bandaged, Patrick Kisnorbo was one of the heroes from the Leeds team of 2010 which beat Manchester United.
He spent four injury ravaged years at the club between 2009 and 2013, with his spell under Simon Grayson the highlight.
Kisnorbo's current club, Australian side Melbourne City announced over the weekend that he has decided to retire from the game.
Kisnorbo turned 35 earlier this year, and had been at Melbourne City since 2013, deciding to head back to his homeland after he was released by Leeds.
Prior to joining the Whites he played more than 100 games for Leicester City, leaving when his contract expired. Their loss proved to be Leeds' gain, temporarily at least, while he was fit.
Memories live on of him successfully shackling Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford as Leeds famously knocked Manchester United out of the FA Cup in their own back yard.
Leeds fans retain their affection for the former defender, and took to Twitter to pay tribute to his career...
