Premier League legend wants to bow out in style

Leicester City striker Kevin Phillips wants to make the final game of his career a goalscoring one, as reported by BBC Sport.

The 40 year old has made over 650 career appearances and scored more than 280 goals in a sterling career playing for nine clubs either in the Premier League or Championship.

Phillips has admitted that he came close to calling it a day after scoring the winner in last year’s play-off final for Crystal Palace, but this year earning promotion as champions will be the perfect way to finish.

The Foxes face Doncaster at the King Power Stadium today and Phillips is keen to get on the scoresheet one final time.

“I am known as a goalscorer and I would love to feel that one more time,” Phillips said.

“There is no better feeling and that would be a great way to finish.”

“It’s a bit of mixed emotions,” Phillips said. “There’s a little bit of relief because I have been thinking about it for a while. When I decided to release the news even my agent was still saying “Are you sure?”

“I thought about it at the end of last season after Wembley, but being promoted again as champions is the perfect way to go out.”
