Toni Kroos Announces Retirement After Euro 2024: Real Madrid and Germany Prodigy Bids Farewell

Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos is set to retire from football after his stint with Germany at Euro 2024. The 34-year-old was expected to extend his contract with Los Blancos. However, on Tuesday, he declared that he would retire after representing his country at the Euros.

Kroos had a successful 10-year run with Madrid, arriving from Bayern Munich in 2014. During his time with the Spanish giants, he clinched LaLiga and the Champions League titles four times each. Playing a crucial role in helping Carlo Ancelotti’s team secure the domestic title in 2023-24, he will bid farewell to his club career in the upcoming Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund before his final Euros appearance.

Initially retiring from international football after Euro 2020, Kroos decided to make a comeback to the national team under Julian Nagelsmann’s leadership earlier this year. In a heartfelt message to Madrid supporters, he expressed his gratitude for their unwavering support throughout his time with the club.

He also mentioned that his decision to retire marks the end of his active football career after the Euro championship. Kroos encouraged Madrid’s fans as the team aims for their 15th European crown, stating that he feels content with the timing of his retirement and is focused on achieving success with the club. His ultimate goal is to end his playing career at the peak of his performance levels, with his mind solely set on clinching the next European title.
