Portland Timbers veteran goalkeeper Jeff Attinella announced his retirement Friday ending a nine-season run in MLS.
The 33-year-old Florida native, who attended South Florida, played in just three games this season (two starts) before a season-ending thigh-tendon rupture that required surgery.
Attinella played in 79 career games (76 starts) over nine seasons with the Timbers (2017-21) and Real Salt Lake (2013-16) with 16 career shutouts. Attinella had 11 of his shutouts with the Timbers.
"Playing for the Portland Timbers and representing the organization and the fans, was the privilege of a lifetime," Atrtinella said in a team release. "To take the field wearing the crest over my heart was something that I never took for granted, and to be able to retire a Portland Timber is truly an honor."
