Tore Reginiussen has decided to hang up his boots this summer. The centre-back, who joined the Boys in Brown after many years of success at Rosenborg BK, announced his retirement on Instagram late on Monday evening.
"I have decided when this season ends, I will retire from professional football. It has been an amazing journey with endless highlights and experiences. I am forever grateful for everything this game has given me, and now it's time for me to move on to the next chapter in life," wrote the 35-year-old central defender, who moved to the Millerntor in late January and has made nine appearances for the club, including three starts, in the second half of the season.
"The time I had in Hamburg and St. Pauli was not long, but I have really enjoyed it, and it was a great way to end my career. I wish I could get to play in a full stadium with the fantastic fans, but I will definitely return to Millerntor and enjoy a game as a supporter," added Reginiussen, who thanked everyone who had been a part of his time in football. He reserved special thanks for his family, who he said had always given him "unconditional" support.
Reginiussen began his career at Alta IF. He later had spells at Tromsø IL, FC Schalke 04, US Lecce, Odense BK and spent many years at Rosenborg, winning four league championships and three cup winner's medals, before his move to the Millerntor. He may not have been with the Boys in Brown for long, but he played his part in an impressive upturn of form in the second half of the season that saw the club secure their league status for another year in late April. Many thanks, Tore! We wish you all the best for the next chapter in your life and are already looking forward to welcoming you as a fan in the stands sometime!
You'll never walk alone!!!
