Kroos To Retire From Professional Football After Euro 2024

Real Madrid and Germany midfielder Toni Kroos has revealed that he would retire from professional football after Euro 2024.

Kroos, 34, quit international football in July 2021 but came out of retirement in February after talks with Germany coach Julian Nagelsmann.

“My ambition was always to finish my career at the peak of my performance level,” Kroos said in a post on his Instagram account, via BBC Sport.

“I am happy and proud that in my mind I found the right timing for my decision and that I could choose it on my own.”

Kroos said that the day he signed for Real Madrid changed his life as a footballer but especially as a person and his only thought now is to help Los Blancos to a 15th European Cup.

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

“After 10 years at the end of season this chapter comes to an end. I will never forget this successful time.”

Kroos made his debut for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga aged 17 in September 2007 and went on to win the first of three German league titles that season.

Also, he was part of the Bayern squad which won the Champions League in 2013, though did not play in the final.

He was named Player of the Tournament at the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup in South Korea.
Germany will play Scotland in the opening game of Euro 2024 on 14 June at Munich’s Allianz Arena.
