Ashton Forced To Retire Respect to the man

Dean Ashton retires Striker Dean Ashton has been forced to retire through injury.

The 26-year-old has succumbed to a long-term ankle problem which he initially sustained when training with England in August 2006.

Chief executive Scott Duxbury told the Hammers website: “This is a sad day and our thoughts are with Dean. I would like to place on record our thanks for all his efforts and wish him the best.”

Ashton, capped at every England level from Under-17s up, was marked out by Capello when the Italian was appointed England manager.

Had it not been for injury he would surely have earned greater international recognition and be jostling for a place in next year’s World Cup in South Africa.

Ashton once said talk of him being injury jinxed was a “myth”, but there is no denying that his early retirement is a cruel end to what could have been a fairytale story.

This video shows Dean battling his ankle injury back in 2007, which goes to show why he is probably sick to the back teeth of physiotherapy by now.Still he was a great player and as you can see did all he can to get back.

Best wishes Deano
