Melbourne Victory's Gülcan Koca has announced her retirement from professional football.
The Westfield W-League veteran took to Instagram last night to announce that her "professional football journey has come to an end."
Koca began her career with Victory in 2009 and has been with the club every season since, finishing with 66 Westfield W-League matches for Melbourne.

In that time the Turkey international has been a hugely versatile presence, appearing predominantly on the right flank but also excelling in both attacking and defensive roles.
"If I could stay here forever I would, but sometimes life creates you a different path that you need to follow," Koca wrote on social media.
"Thank you to everyone who supported me along the way, coaches, team mates, medical staff, my family and friends and the fans! I will never forget the hot and cold day/ nights and long drives you all made to support me and my team and for that I will be forever great full."
