This 2012-13 season has seen many great footballers retire as well as a manager known as 'Fergie'.

Here are my Top 5 retired footballers this season.

1. David Beckham - Wearing the '99 Treble Season Kit

Even if you do not follow football everyone has heard of Becks, a great loss to the game but I am sure will always be involved in the beautiful game.

2. Stiliyan Petrov - Support Stan #19

Villa captain, loved by all wherever he played, described by many as a true gent. Petrov announced his retirement earlier this month having spent over a year out of the first team, battling acute leukaemia. Petrov is in remission and has been charged with helping Cowans nurture Villa's future talent.

3. Paul Scholes - Wearing the '99 Treble Season Kit

Scholes spent his entire career at Man Utd and made his debut in 1994, Many past greats have said Paul Scholes was a player in his own league and is one of Alex Fergusons most important players.

4. Michael Owen - Wearing the '98 England V Argentina Kit

What a striker and what a goal versus Argentina in 98. Owen scored 158 goals in 297 matches for Liverpool and 40 in 89 games for England. A prolific striker with blistering pace.

5. Jamie Carragher - Wearing the 2005 Champions League Final Kit

Carragher is another rare player who spent his whole career at on club. 737 games for Liverpool and only the second player - after Ryan Giggs - to have over 500 league appearances for one club. A Kop legend.
