U.S. international right back Steve Cherundolo, known as the "Mayor of Hannover" for his longevity, popularity and high standard of play, Wednesday announced his retirement from professional soccer.

The 35-year-old Cherundolo said that several knee injuries over the past 15 months forced him to call it a career, he said at a press conference.

A member of three World Cup teams -- 2002, 2006 and 2010 -- Cherundolo said he would become a coach.

He played a club-record 302 matches in the Bundesliga for Hannover.

Cherundolo has made 82 appearances for the full U.S. national team, scoring twice.

He will remain with Hannover as assistant coach of its Under-23 team.
