Laure Boulleau hangs up the boots

At 31 years of age, Laure Boulleau will retire from professional football after Thursday's Coupe de France final against Lyon in Strasbourg.

Having joined the club in 2005, the left-back played 225 matches for Paris Saint-Germain. A star of the women's game in France, Laure won the Coupe de France with Les Rouge et Bleu, in 2010, and was a key element of the Paris Saint-Germain squad that reached two finals of the UEFA Women's Champions League, in 2015 and 2017. During her magnificent career, Laure earned 65 caps for the France national team, becoming one of her country's emblematic players.

"I have decided to retire from my playing carrer and it's with a big smile that I announce it today, because I feel ready," declared Laure Boulleau after training on Tuesday. "I am convinced that I can also achieve things in other fields and the time is right. I would like to thank all the people that I have met along the way, throughout my career and who have always supported me."

The club warmly congratulates Laure Boulleau on her outstanding career and fondly thanks her for her professionalism, her loyalty down the years and her generous and joyous personality.
