Freo favourite David Mundy announces retirement

Fremantle veteran David Mundy has made the shock announcement he will retire at the end of the AFL season.

Just last month, Mundy said he was keen to keep playing “until they kick me out” as the potential for him to reach the magical 400-game milestone grew.

David Mundy will retire at the end of the season.

But the 37-year-old, who has notched 371 AFL games, told his teammates of his decision to retire on Monday.

“I’m incredibly proud, I’ve been living my dream for 19 years now and I’ve loved every bit of it,” Mundy said.

“Not all of it has been easy, there’s been quite a few, really hard and emotional bits to it, but I’ve been able to grow as a person and as a player throughout my time at Fremantle and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I’m really proud of the person I’ve been able to develop into, the family I’ve been able to create, and my role within the football club.

“I feel I’ve grown from a skinny fullback who didn’t want to talk to anyone, to being a part of the leadership group for a number of years now.

“I’m proud of that growth and that journey and I’m looking to get the most out of this season and explore what’s next.”
