NEW DELHI: German midfielder Toni Kroos will retire after the 2024 European Championship, his club Real Madrid said Tuesday.
Madrid said the 34-year-old German international ‘has decided to bring an end to his time as a professional footballer following Euro 2024.’
“My career as an active footballer will end this summer after the Euro championship,” 34-year-old Kroos, who won the 2014 World Cup with Germany, said on Instagram.
Before the European Championship, Kroos has a chance to win the Champions League with Real for a fifth time when they face Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on June 1.
He also won the Champions League with Bayern Munich before joining the Spanish giants.
Kroos joined Real in 2014 and quickly formed a formidable midfield partnership with Luka Modric.
In a statement on their website, Real said Kroos “will go down in Real Madrid history as one of our club and international football’s greatest legends”.
Kroos has also won the Liga title four times.
