Ince quits playing at Swindon, raising prospect of retirement

Former England midfielder Paul Ince quit playing at League Two club Swindon Town, raising the prospect that he may retire.
Swindon said Wednesday that Ince was struggling with to commute from his home in Chester in northern England to the club's southern England base.
The 38-year-old, who has played more than 700 club matches, had joined Swindon on a one-year contract in August from League Championship club Wolves.
Ince, who played 53 times for England, didn't say if he would retire immediately but will do some work at Swindon as he works toward coaching qualifications.
Swindon manager Dennis Wise _ who played alongside Ince for England _ said the decision was mutual.
"He doesn't want to put himself into something that he is not 110 percent behind and I respect him for that," Wise said. "He tried to help me out and we still remain good friends. It was difficult with him with the traveling and at his age, he felt that he had to remain closer to his family."
The former West Ham, Manchester United, Inter Milan, Liverpool and Middlesbrough midfielder made two appearances for Swindon and scored one goal.
