Toni Kroos retirement: German midfielder sends message to Real Madrid fans

Toni Kroos is a bona-fide Real Madrid legend and has won 22 trophies with the club, including four UEFA Champions Leagues. The German joined from Bayern Munich in 2014. He has since been crucial for Los Blancos. He penned a heartfelt letter to Real Madrid fans, writing:

“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!”

Toni Kroos has the chance to end his Real Madrid career in grand manner. He could win the Champions League for the sixth time, fifth time with Los Blancos, with a win against Dortmund in his final club game.
