Conrad in action at the 2006 World Cup
According to numerous reports, former US national team defender Jimmy Conrad will announce his retirement from soccer on Thursday.
Conrad, 34, has played in only two games this season with Chivas USA due to a concussion he suffered on March 26 in a game against Colorado. In 2009, Conrad suffered a serious concussion while playing for the US national team in a Gold Cup game against Panama.
