The world champion with the German National Team in 2014 indicated that he thought about making this decision “for a long time.”
Andre Schurrle, one of the players who raised the World cup with Germany in Brazil 2014confirmed his retirement from professional football on Friday at the young age of 29.
Earlier this week, the forward ended his contract with Borussia Dortmund and was released.
The former Chelsea announced his decision on social networks, where he shared a heartfelt message along with a photo in which he is seen lifting the Cup in 2014
“I want to let you know that I am moving away from professional soccer! On behalf of myself and my family, I want to thank everyone who was part of these phenomenal years! The support and love they shared with me was incredible and more than I could have asked! “the German started saying.
“Now I am ready and open for all the beautiful possibilities that come to me. The decision matured in me for a long time. The depths became deeper and the reflections less and less,” he added.
It should be remembered that it was Schurrle who gave the pass from the left to Mario Gotze, author of the both winner in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina.
