Real Madrid Legend Toni Kroos Announces Retirement Following Season’s End

Real Madrid icon Toni Kroos has stunned the football world by announcing his departure from the club at the end of the season, followed by his retirement after the Euros this summer in Germany.

The 34-year-old midfielder has been open about his retirement plans over the past two years, emphasizing that he would never play for another club aside from Real Madrid. With the prospect of securing a La Liga and Champions League double, Kroos has a golden opportunity to conclude his illustrious career on a high note.

Kroos temporarily came out of international retirement in March to participate in his final tournament with Germany, set to take place on home soil during the Euros this summer. The German maestro will retire as one of the most decorated players in football history.

Reflecting on his journey, Kroos shared his thoughts on his podcast, Einfach Mal Luppen, with Marca reporting: “July 17, 2014, the day of my presentation at Real Madrid, the day that changed my life. My life as a footballer, but above all as a person. 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.”

In addition, Kroos published an open letter to the fans, expressing his gratitude and emotions:

“I will never forget this exciting and successful decade! I would like to especially thank president Florentino Perez, the club, and everyone who welcomed me with an open heart and trusted me. But above all, I want to thank you, dear Real Madrid fans, 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 Euros. 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 was always to finish my career at the top of my level. From this moment on, there is only one main thought in my mind and nothing is going to separate me from this: Let’s go for 15!!! HALA MADRID AND NOTHING MORE!”

As Kroos prepares to bid farewell to his remarkable playing career, he leaves behind a legacy of excellence and a deep connection with the Real Madrid faithful.
