Another member of Bayern Munich’s 2012-13 triple winning team has decided that it is time to call it a career. A man with a great name and Ukrainian hair legend Anatoliy Tymoshchuk has announced that he’s officially retired from the sport and will be taking a well-deserved vacation.

Tymoshchuk last played in November for FC Kairat in Kazakhstan where he helped the club to back-to-back appearances in the Kazakhstan Cup Final, winning one. His contract expired in November, and he’s no longer looking for a club.

He’s not jumping directly into coaching, but that option remains a possibility for Tymoshchuk and is likely in his future. He recently passed the UEFA pro coaching exam and now has his license.

Tymoshchuk is the second player from Bayern’s triple winning team to officially retire from the game, joining Daniel van Buyten. Philipp Lahm will join the three of them this summer, following his recent retirement announcement.

Good luck, Tymo.
