VVV Venlo midfielder Earnie Stewart has decided to call time on his playing career to start his new job as technical director at the club, effective July 1st.

The American veteran still has a year remaining on his contract, but apparently nagging knee troubles have caused him to rethink his future.

The Limburg side are preparing to battle for promotion, and against earlier hopes, Stewart has not recovered from an injury suffered against TOP Oss on March 14th in time to figure in the playoffs.

The Holland-born U.S. icon also played for Willem II, NAC Breda and D.C. United, scoring 119 goals along the way.

During an illustrious international career, Stewart scored 17 goals in 101 caps and scooped the 2001 Chevy U.S. Athlete of the Year award.
