Holland international Marc Overmars has revealed he renounced the final year on his Barcelona contract and quit the professional game altogether
because he no longer feels able to perform at the highest level.
The former Arsenal winger was told he would not be considered by Barca this season despite having a year left on his deal at the Nou Camp.
And, following a persistent knee problem, the 31-year-old renounced the remaining year and announced his retirement.
