Toni Kroos Retires from Soccer

Toni Kroos will retire after the European Championship

Through an emotional letter and his podcast, Toni Kroos has told Real Madrid and its supporters that he would be retiring from soccer at the end of the current campaign.

“My life changed on July 17, 2014, the day I gave my presentation at Real Madrid. My life as a football player, but mostly as a human being.

“It was the beginning of a new life at the greatest Club in the world. Today, after 10 years, at the end of the season, this life comes to an end. I will never forget this successful and exciting decade!

“I would especially like to thank President Florentino Perez, the Club and all those who welcomed me with an open heart and trusted me. But above all I would like to thank you, dear madridistas, for your love and support from the first day to the last.

“At the same time, this decision means that my career as an active footballer will end this summer after the European Championship.

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

“Today I am happy and proud to have found in my head and in my heart the right moment for this decision. My ambition has always been to finish my career at the top of my level. From this moment on, in my mind there is only one main thought and nothing will take me away from this: LET’S GO FOR THE 15TH!!! HALA MADRID AND NOTHING ELSE!”

On June 1, in the Champions League final at Wembley, Toni Kroos’s successful Real Madrid career will come to an end. After just two training sessions, on July 17, 2014, he arrived at the White Club. Two weeks later, on August 12, he was already guiding the squad from midfield and winning his first championship. The first of his twenty-two victories in white.

He could win five Champions League titles with Real Madrid on June 1st, in addition to four Spanish La Liga EA Sports titles, three European Super Cups, five Club World Cups, one Copa del Rey, and five Supercopa de Espanas. An unmatched resume of accomplishments for a special football player.
