Ex-Red to retire
By Al Campbell Friday 26th January 2007
Former Liverpool defender Markus Babbel is to retire from playing at the end of the season.
Babbel, now playing in Germany with VFB Stuttgart, is to retire at the end of this season due to persistent knee problems.
“That’s the way it looks now, I’ll call it a day,” said the former Liverpool right-back.
“I was always a player that could be counted on to perform. I’m not able to do that any more.”
Babbe was signed for the Reds by Gerard Houllier in 2000 and was a vital component of the treble side of 2001. Babbel only played one season for the Reds before being cruely sidelined with Guillian-Barre Syndrome. The defender did return to first team action in 2002/3 but was soon sold to Blackburn Rovers.
