Carlton veteran Matthew Kreuzer is set to announce his retirement, according to SEN’s Sam Edmund.

Injuries have hampered the ruckman’s career and restricted him to just 28 games in the last three seasons.

“Matthew Kreuzer has played his last game for Carlton and will announce his retirement today,” Edmund tweeted.

“If there’s ever been a player who always put their hand up it was this bloke. Near constant injuries meant we never saw the best of him, but he was enormously valued at Princes Park.”

The 31-year old’s sole appearance in 2020 came in Round 1 where he suffered a foot injury that has kept him sidelined since.

Taken with Pick 1 in the 2007 AFL Draft, Kreuzer has played 189 games for Carlton.
