Portsmouth chief executive Peter Storrie has paid tribute to Linvoy Primus after the defender announced his retirement yesterday.
Primus has suffered ongoing knee problems and underwent surgery earlier this year but doctors advised him against continuing playing and he will now undertake an ambassadorial role for Pompey.
Storrie paid tribute to the player, saying: "Linvoy is Mr Portsmouth and we're sad that he will not be donning a blue shirt again. He has been a great servant to the club and is loved by everyone here and in the city.
"But Linvoy still has so much to give to the club so we're delighted that he is going to be staying with us beyond this season in an ambassadorial role."
The London-born player started his professional career at Charlton before he moved on to Barnet and Reading until his switch to Fratton Park.
