Arsenal's Tabea Kemme retires due to a long term knee injury

Arsenal midfielder Tabea Kemme has retired after a long term knee injury resulted in her playing only a handful of games for the North London club.

The former German international joined Arsenal in July 2018 from Turbine Potsdam. The 28-year-old won the UEFA Women’s Champions League and the Frauen-Bundesliga before moving to north London. She represented Germany 47 times and was part of the team at the 2016 Olympic Games where they won gold.

She announced her retirement with a emotional Instagram post saying 'After 14 years of competitive sport, which was very formative for me, a prolonged knee injury means I‘m unable to continue playing top-level football. This chapter has now ended.'
