Teddy Sheringham has officially came out of retirement at the grand old age of 49.
Former Manchester United striker Sheringham, who will turn 50 in April, has decided to register himself as a player for Stevenage, the club he currently manages.
And Sheringham, who won the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League and 51 England caps during a glittering career, reckons he can still contribute on the pitch to the League Two outfit.
According to the Daily Mirror, the ex-West Ham and Spurs forward retired from playing in 2008 but he’s ready to dust his boots off and play in Stevenage’s upcoming Herts Senior Challenge Cup match against Garden City on Wednesday, a competition played between teams in the Hertfordshire area.
Sheringham’s assistant at Stevenage, Kevin Watson, has also registered for the match but is a pup in comparison at the youthful age of just 41.
He may be pushing the big 5-0 but Sheringham still has some way to go before beating goalkeeper coach Dave Beasant’s record, who was 56 when named on Stevenage’s bench for last season’s play-offs.
