Tim Howard comes out of retirement aged 40

Tim Howard comes out of retirement aged 40 after signing a contract with Memphis 901, a club who he’s partly owner and a sporting director with.

The former Everton and Manchester United shot stopper reignites his playing career with the USL Championship club, a tier below Major League Soccer (MLS).

He could potentially make his debut for them when the Eastern Conference season kicks off with a home fixture against Indy Eleven this Saturday.

It was only October when he retired from playing after a three-year spell with MLS side Colorado Rapids.

In September 2018, Howard also became part-owner of English fifth-tier club Dagenham & Redbridge.

He said in a recent interview: “I love to play and I love to compete, this gives me the opportunity to do both.

“Since my retirement in October, my obsession for football has grown. The desire to win continues to drive me.”

Howard made 491 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United and Everton between 2003 and 2016.

He also won 121 caps for the USA and played at two World Cups.

Howard holds the record for the most saves in a World Cup game – 15 against Belgium in 2014. He retired from international football in 2017.
