'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Severin forced to retire

Former Scotland international Scott Severin has been forced to retire through injury.

The 33-year-old broke his leg against St Mirren back in August after only joining United from Kilmarnock the previous year.

"I was down 10 to 12 days ago in London and I spoke to the consultant, who said there was just too much damage on my ankle," Severin told BBC Scotland. "So that's it, all over. It was hard to take at the time.

"Me and the physio kind of knew that might be the case, but we wanted a second opinion," he continued. "In later years, I would probably have been a cripple, so you just have to look ahead with your family. I am just disappointed that I only managed to play 18 games for Dundee United."

Severin earned fifteen caps for Scotland and hopes to continue in the game in some capacity.

"I've spoken to the manager and he's allowing me to help out with the training and I'm currently doing my coaching badges as well," he added. "I've just to look to the future now and hopefully it will still be in football."
