Barney Announces Immediate Retirement Following Defeat To Van Gerwen
The one and only.
The one and only.

Raymond van Barneveld announced his immediate retirement from darts in a sincere, honest, and heartfelt interview after his 7-1 loss to Michael van Gerwen, having been knocked out of the Premier League tournament the previous day by Daryl Gurney,

Barney had received a rapturous reception on his return to Rotterdam for the very last time as a professional.

With deep and mournful resignation, Barney rued his poor form and conceded that he just isn't good enough to compete anymore, and the pressure has been taking its toll.

"I don 't have the energy to start from scratch again."

He's not going to try and qualify for the World Championship, with the defeat to MVG bringing forward the end date of his career he proclaimed all the way back in November.

Van Barneveld is one of only three players to win five world titles, winning the British Darts Organisation title in 1998, 1999, 2003 and 2005 and the 2007 Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) title.

Barney, thanks again mate.
