D.C. United defender Frederic Brillant announced his retirement from professional football, and will join the Loudoun United FC technical staff as an assistant coach, it was announced Tuesday.

The center back spent the last four years as a staple of D.C. United’s backline, recording 99 appearances for the Washington D.C. side. 

“It is bittersweet to announce my retirement from professional soccer after over 15 years as a player. I want to thank D.C. United and New York City FC in addition to my Belgian clubs Beerschot AC and K.V. Oostende for trusting me as a player and making my career so enjoyable,” Brillant said in a statement.

“Now, I am excited about this next challenge in my life and am looking forward to applying everything I’ve learned as a player as a coach for the next generation.”

His career spanned 16 years, making over 400 professional appearances in the United States and Belgium.
