Abou-Treika Retires After 1-6 Defeat To Ghana

Ahli and Egypt star Mohamed Abou-Treika has confirmed that he will retire from football after the end of the season. Following speculation that he will hang out his boots after the 2013-2014 season, the 34-year-old confirmed the news about his future. Treika�s decision follows Egypt�s thumping 6-1 defeat to Ghana in the World Cup qualifying playoff first leg, virtually ending the Pharaohs hopes of a place in Brazil. �Yes it is true. I won�t be playing football all my life. It�s time for me to retire,� Abou-Treika told FilGoal.com. �This is life. It�s time for retirement because there are no more motives for me. �The World Cup dream was my last and now is the time for younger players.� Since joining Ahli in 2004, Abou-Treika managed to establish his place in Egypt�s history books as one of the country�s most decorated players of all time. The midfield star has two Africa Cup of Nations and four CAF Champions League titles to his name.
