"It's always hard the moment you decide to stop playing.

"It does matter if you're at a small club or a big club. It's the end of your playing career. So that's always going to be a big moment for any player.

"Several factors will help me decide. Am I still enjoying it? Do the club still want me? These kinds of things.
