Chris Wingert Announces Retirement

Chris Wingert announced his retirement on Monday, and the well-wishes began pouring in immediately.  Kyle Beckerman, Mike Petke, Luke Mulholland, and Javier Morales are just a few of those who chimed in, thanking Wingert for his contribution to the team over the years.

Wingert spent his entire professional career in Major Leagues Soccer, joining the Columbus Crew (2004-2005) after playing college soccer at St. John’s.  Following the Crew, Wingert joined the Colorado Rapids (2006-2007), before going to Real Salt Lake, where he appeared in 247 games from 2007-2014 and 2016-2017.  Wingert won one Major League Soccer Championship in 2009 with RSL, and had one cap with the U.S. men’s national team.

Chris joined The Bill Riley Show on Tuesday to discuss his decision and his favorite moments from his 14-year professional career.
