Vitesse midfielder Theo Janssen has hinted that he could retire from football at the end of the current season.
The 31-year-old only signed a three-year deal with the Eredivisie high-flyers last summer, but he is already thinking about calling it quits.
Janssen says that he plans to consider his future when the current season draws to a close.
“Am I going to continue? It is not yet certain,” the highly rated midfielder was quoted as saying in Voetbal International.
“At some point you have to make a choice. At the end of the season we will see how I feel and how the club feel.”
Janssen began his professional career at his boyhood club, while he also represented Genk and Twente before joining Ajax in the summer of 2011.
Despite impressing in his first season at Amsterdam ArenA, the player opted to return to Vitesse, and he accepted a major pay cut to facilitate the move.
He has, however, been struggling for form this season, scoring just one goal and producing another assist in 23 league matches, but that did not stop his team from climbing to the second place in Eredivisie standings.
