The 33-year-old left-back has decided that after being injured for a while. He ended his career with six seasons in Strømsgodset, where he played in total 128 matches.

– Fortunately, my most serious injury came late in my career. I will be happy for what I have experienced, and not least because I have had the opportunity here. If you go a little away from the football bubble, then this was the only thing right now. It became too great a risk to “push” it more, he says TV 2.

Parr broke through in Aalesund and later played for Crystal Palace and Ipswich before returning home. He played nine A-national matches for Norway in the years 2010-2013.

Going forward, he will work as growth manager in the newly started used car company Rebil.
