Miroslav Klose to retire at the end of the season

World Cup record goalscorer Miroslav Klose reveals that he will retire at the end of the season.

Germany striker Miroslav Klose has said that he plans to retire at the end of the season.

The 36-year-old was a crucial part of his country's World Cup winning squad as he scored twice in Brazil to become the tournament's all-time leading goalscorer.

Klose signed a one-year contract extension in May with his current club Lazio and it appears that he will end his career at the Stadio Olimpico.

"I've decided to retire in 2015," Klose told Bild.

Klose has scored a record 71 goals for Germany in 137 appearances.
