Kean Bryan, a former footballer who played for both Manchester City and Sheffield United, has made the difficult decision to retire at the young age of 27, according to recent reports.
Bryan is well-remembered for his goal in Sheffield United’s historic 2-1 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford just two years ago. Despite his promising start, he has chosen to end his playing career.
Although Bryan began his football journey at Manchester City as a youth player, he never had the chance to feature in an official match for the club. Instead, he gained recognition at various lower-tier clubs.
In light of his retirement, Sheffield United has paid tribute to Bryan and extended their best wishes to him. In his own words, Bryan shared the reasons behind his decision, citing a year of new beginnings and a persistent knee injury that ultimately led to his farewell from professional football.
He expressed his gratitude for realizing his childhood dream of becoming a professional footballer, growing up in Gorton and aspiring to play the sport at the highest level. Despite his injury setbacks, Bryan looks back with pride on his time in the Premier League and representing some of England’s most prominent clubs.
