Marcos Senna retires
Villarreal legend Marcos Antonio Senna da Silva retired from playing football. In a surprisingly unemotional interview Senna described his motives for quitting the game. Making many skeptical of whether he is actually 'quitting' the game.
Senna's career as a professional football player is a truly amazing one. Starting his career in his place of birth, Brazil. Senna quickly made a name for himself transferring to Villarreal for the 2002-03 season. The first two seasons of his career at Villarreal he only made a dismal 25 appearances.
On 27 April 2008, Senna scored a goal from inside the centre circle against Real Betis that he deemed "the best goal of my life". That season, as the player netted a further three times, in a total of 33 matches, Villarreal finished a club-best second, to champions Real Madrid.

After eleven years of ups and downs Senna eventually transferred to New York Cosmo's playing a season for them scoring six goals in fourteen fixtures for the US club.
