The list of players from Real Salt Lake’s renaissance 2008 and 2009 seasons who have retired just keeps growing, with Robbie Findley the latest to join the list.

Findley, retiring at 32, played in two stints for Real Salt Lake, with the first from 2007 to 2010, and the second in 2013 and 2013. During his time at the club, he played in two MLS Cup finals, scored 42 goals, and was a big part of RSL’s most successful teams.

Most notably, Findley scored in the run-up to both MLS Cups, and he scored a vital equalizing goal in the 2009 championship.

Following a slightly diminished 2010 campaign, Findley signed with Nottingham Forest, where he played under a slew of coaches in just two years of play. He returned to Salt Lake in 2013.

Findley’s 2014 campaign saw him play only 16 matches after struggling to return to form after an injury sustained in the 2013 MLS Cup.
