Football: Mariners' Dutch defender Zwaanswijk to retire

Dutch defender Patrick Zwaanswijk, rated one of the best foreign imports to play in Australia's A-League, said Friday he will retire after the Central Coast Mariners' AFC Champions League tie against China's Guangzhou Evergrande. The 38-year-old former FC Utrecht and NAC Breda defender will wind up his playing career in the two-match tie against Marcello Lippi's Ghuangzhou in Gosford next Wednesday and the reverse fixture in China on May 22. The Mariners said Zwaanswijk will remain with the club and take charge of the youth team for the next three years.
