Paul Robinson has confirmed his intention to retire from football after ending his time at Burnley.

The shot-stopper, who spent four years at Tottenham between 2004 and 2008, released a statement on Monday to confirm he is leaving his current club Burnley to spend more time with his family and fully recover from a back injury he sustained last season.

Having signed a new one-year deal at Turf Moor last summer, Robinson went on to make three top-flight appearances for the Clarets, helping them to a 16th place finish in the Premier League. Taking everything into consideration I've made a decision to announce my retirement.

"I intend to take a short time out to spend time with my family and explore the different options available to me".

Robinson, who was out of contract after spending the last 18 months with Premier League side Burnley, gained 41 worldwide caps and played in all five England matches on their run to the 2006 World Cup quarter-finals.

"In all my career I have never been a part of a more dedicated, hard-working set of players and staff".

Robinson spent the biggest chunk of his lengthy professional career with Blackburn Rovers.
