Former Clarets defender David Unsworth, who had his contract at Huddersfield cancelled recently has decided to end his playing career at 35 and concentrate on coaching.
Speaking about the decision the former England international told the Liverpool Echo
'I've had a great time but it's the right time now for me to concentrate on something else,I am doing my coaching badges and my intention is to move into that side of the game. I'm thoroughly enjoying the coaching side and am keen to really get started, which is the main reason for hanging my boots up.'
Unsworth was signed by the Clarets in August 2007 on a one-year contract after being released by Wigan.
In his one season with the Clarets he had two gaffers after Owen Coyle replaced Steve Cotterill in November 2007.
Coyle offered Unsworth another deal at the end of the season this time as player-coach.
Unsworth however indicated he still wanted to play regular football and did not feel he would see enough first-team action if he stayed at Turf Moor. He therefore rejected the deal and left the club in June 2008.
Former Clarets gaffer, Stan Ternent then newly appointed in charge at Huddersfield was impressed with the defender during pre-season games and signed him on a one year deal in August 2008.
Sadly for Stan his new manager's job at the Galpharm Stadium would not be successful and in November of that year he left by mutual consent.
Unsworth failed to become a regular first-team player after new Terriers gaffer Lee Clark took charge.
Unsie made just four appearances for the Terriers and one wonders whether he would have done better to stay at Turf Moor and by now have already developed some of his coaching skills at a higher level. With our problems in the back four this season, he could well have played more than 4 games too!
