Former Mexico goalkeeper Jorge Campos, perhaps best known for wearing outrageous dayglo strips and for his occasional outfield forays, has announced his retirement.
Campos, who made his last international appearance in a friendly against Iceland in November, has accepted an offer to work as an assistant to Mexico coach Ricardo Lavolpe.
“I’ve experienced everything a footballer dreams of experiencing,” said the 37-year-old, who played at the 1994 and 1998 World Cups.
“This invitation is something special, I’ve always dreamed about coaching,” he added.
Campos played for Mexican clubs UNAM, Atlante, UNL and Cruz Azul and Puebla as well as for Los Angeles Galaxy and Chicago Fire in the United States.
