Toni Kroos confirms retirement from football

German legend Toni Kroos has confirmed his retirement from football with the decision set to come into effect after the Euro 2024.

“As I have always said: Real Madrid is and will be my last club”.

“July 17th, 2014 – the day of my presentation at Real Madrid, the day that changed my life. My life as a footballer – but especially as a person. It was the start of a new chapter at the biggest club in the world.

After 10 years, at the end of the season this chapter comes to an end. I will never forget that insolent successful time! I would particularly like to thank everyone that welcomed me with an open heart and trusted me.

But especially I would like to thank you, dear Madridistas, for your affection and your love from the first day until the last one. At the same time this decision means that my career as an active footballer will end this summer after the Euro championship”.

“I am happy and proud, that in my mind I found the right timing for my decision and that I could choose it by my own. My ambition was always to finish my career at the peak of my performance level. From now on there is only one leading thought: a por la 15!!! HALA MADRID Y NADA MAS!” he said

Kroos continued by describing his current season as the best he wanted to end his career with.

“I am convinced that it is the correct decision. I wanted to end it in the best way possible and this season is one of the best I have played”.

“My goal was to finish in the best way, this season has been one of my best. I want you to remember me as I am now” said Kroos.
