Ashton to Announce Retirement
The Daily Telegraph posted an article on its website today saying that Gianfranco Zola had dismissed suggestions that Dean Ashton's career is over. However within minutes they pulled the article and replaced it with one that says the player will announce his retirement later this week.
This news is also being reported widely elsewhere. The Telegraph article says that Ashton has been warned that he may end up being unable to walk properly if he continues to try and play football.
