Andorran international midfield player Jesús Julian Lucendo is to retire from football after suffering a serious knee injury at the weekend.
Brief Barcelona career
The 33-year-old, who had a brief spell at FC Barcelona in the 1980s, needs surgery after tearing a ligament in his right knee while playing for FC Andorra on Saturday. "The knee has had enough," Lucendo admitted. "The doctor said the ligament has been degenerating for some time and I am not thinking of playing again."
Lucendo won 28 caps for Andorra, scoring three goals. He appeared for the last time against Bulgaria in a UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifier in September.
