The Italian Antonio Cassano, exjugador of Real Madrid, Milan or Inter Milan, among other equipment, announced this Saturday his retirement of the world of the soccer to the 36 years, with a letter in which it assures that it finishes his race "without remorse". Cassano made his decision after taking a one-week test with Virtus Entella, a club that plays in the Italian Serie C (Third Division), and realizing that he no longer has enough motivation to train "with continuity".
"Dear friends, the day has come when you decide that it's really over," Cassano wrote in a letter published on "Twitter" by a well-known local journalist with whom the former Italian player maintains a strong friendship bond. "In these days of work I realized that I no longer have the mental motivation to train with continuity.To play football serves passion, talent, but above all determination, and I at this moment have other priorities," he continued.
The former striker from Bari (southern Italy) thanked the comrades, rivals and coaches he had in his career and stressed that football "gave him a lot" and allowed him to get out of a very complicated economic situation. "I know that if I had another character I could have won more trophies and played better, but believe me, I've also experienced incredible emotions," he explained.
Now the second half of my life begins "
Throughout his career, Cassano was the protagonist of a series of unprofessional behaviors, which in Italy were dubbed as "Cassanate", although the former Italian striker stressed that he has "zero remorse" for his career. "Now the second half of my life begins, I am curious and I am determined to demonstrate above all to myself that I am capable of doing good things even without the help of my feet, thanks to everyone, Antonio Cassano," he concluded. .
In his career, the Italian conquered the Spanish League 2006-07 with Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello and Serie A (Italian First Division) with Milan; he also won two Italian Super Cups, with Milan and Rome. EFE
