Does the Mirror Reflect Jansen's State of Mind?

The Mirror threw Wrexham's fans into some confusion on their way to Histon with the revelation that Matt Jansen appeared to have retired!

Terry Darracott certainly didn't confirm the matter that he's hung up his boots after the match, saying he'd be out for about three weeks, so was he playing the question with a straight bat or is there nothing to it?

Perhaps the article's misleading us, The opening paragraph seems to make claims that the actual comments of Jansen don't back up. So was it a case of a journalist making a mountain out of a molehill, or were things said off the record which he wasn't able to quote but was able to imply? Or is it simply a case of a national journalist seeing playing for Wrexham as tantamount to retirement?

I spoke to a few people who have the inside line at The Racecourse this afternoon, and the story surprised all of them. That, plus the impression the article gives me, suggests to me that Jansen will be with us until the end of the season, but will probably retire then. Which is hardly a million miles from what seemed a likely outcome when he arrived is it?
