OFFICIAL: Toni Kroos Announces His Retirement

The German midfielder will retire after the UEFA Euro

Real Madrid legend Toni Kroos has announced on his social media that he will retire after the upcoming UEFA Euro, which will be played this summer. Therefore, his last game for Real Madrid will be the Champions League Final against Borussia Dortmund.

As he always said he’d do, Kroos will leave at the top. The 2023-24 season has been one of his best campaigns as a player and he has plenty of fuel left in the tank to think that he could be a very relevant player and undisputed starter for Real Madrid next year.

Kroos will play Champions League final, Euro 2024 and then he will leave football as personal decision made…

“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, 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!”, Kroos has posted…

Still, Kroos’ decision is a very mature one. It’s clear that leaving the game while still on top was a priority for him and that means that Real Madrid fans will not get to see his decline.

Kroos is not only one of the best midfielders in club history, but also one of the best in the history of the sport. A truly trascendant player.
