The list of veteran MLS players to retire this season continued to grow, with long-time New York forward John Wolyniec announcing his immediate retirement and Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Eddie Lewis announcing that he would retire at the end of the current MLS season.
Lewis will bring an end to a special career that saw him serve as a key contributor to the U.S. national team, as well as a player who enjoyed his share of success in Europe.
Wolyniec brings an end to a 12-year career, most of which was spent as a fan favorite of the New York Red Bulls (and the New York/New Jersey MetroStars). He finished second on the all-time list in games played for the Red Bulls, but it was the special moments he delivered for the club that made him a fan favorite. His two goals in the team's MLS Cup run in 2008, including his goals in the MLS Cup Final loss to Columbus.
Wolyniec will stay with the Red Bulls and work the team's academy.
