In a post on Twitter, Ba wrote: “It is with a heart filled with gratefulness that I announce the end of my playing career.

“What a wonderful journey it has been. Beside all the sweat and tears I have faced, football has given me so many beautiful emotions. From the passion of the fans and the noise coming from the stands after every goal to the connection with my teammates on and off the field , this will forever remain in my head and heart.

“I wanna thank everyone I’ve crossed paths with and helped me grow, every club and manager for given me an opportunity, the fans for their tremendous support and my family and friends for their unconditional love.

“From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU. Praise be to the almighty.”

Ba also represented Newcastle United, West Ham, Besiktas, Shanghai Shenhua and Istanbul Basaksehir in a 16-year senior career. The 36-year-old also picked up 22 caps for Senegal and scored four goals for the nation at senior level.

That wonderful goal he scored against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge still remains one of my favorites.... But my all time favorite is the magical goal Ronaldinho scored against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge... He made Ricardo Carvalho and John Terry do the "Samba Dance" before leaving Cech stranded.


Good looking out to you Demba Ba.

His goal scoring records are decent for an impact substitute.. mostly.
36 is a ripe age to retire in football.Respect to Dem ba
But Maximum respect to Cr7 who is still going strong at 36 and Zlatan Ibracadabra who will turn 40 next month...Respect!

Re: Demba Ba Retires From Football At 36 by gentleman82: 9:10am On Sep 14, 2021
Repent now of your sinful evil ways to avoid spending your eternity in hell fire after you die. Jesus Christ love and warns you to repent and convert now to Christianity to avoid hell fire. Only Jesus Christ can save you by his death on the cross and his blood which washes away your sins, any other ways ( Islam, paganism, Hinduism, atheism, etc) can not save you. Be wise while you still have the chance accept Jesus Christ now and save your soul from hell. Be wiser than Satan and follow the one true God. This is the eternal truth from the spiritual realm.
