Danny Tiatto announced his retirement from senior football recently after a long and illustrious 18 year career at both club and international level.
The 37-year-old decided to hang up the boots after the Melbourne Knight’s 4-2 victory over Northcote City in Round 21, opting to sit the last round out, knowing that the Knight’s had avoided relegation.
His final performance was one to remember, keeping the League’s leading scorer, Trent Rixon, extremely quiet, before being substituted for Tomislav Ples in the 76th minute.
Danny was pleased with his final performance for the Knights.
“I was happy, it’s always good to end something on a high, especially winning, and keeping the boys up”.
“To finish it off like that, at the club that gave me the first opportunity to move forward in my footballing career was great. It was great to give something back,” he said.
He started his career started way back in 1992, with the Bulleen Lions in the Victorian Premier League, where he made 36 appearances over two seasons. The midfielder then moved onto the NSL, playing in the 1994/95 and 1995/96 Melbourne Knights NSL championship teams.
