Aritz Aduriz has decided today to put an end to his career. He has communicated his decision with this message:
The time has come. Many times, I have said that football will leave you, before you leave it. Yesterday, the doctors told me to go see the surgeon, sooner rather than later, to get a prosthetic to replace my hip and to try and go about my everyday life, as normally as possible. Unfortunately, my body has said “enough”. I can´t help my teanmates the way I would like to, nor the way that they deserve. That is the life of a professional athlete. Simple, ver simple.
Unfortunately, we are living through situations much more grim and painful; the pandemic that we are suffering from has left us with irreparable damage and we have to keep fighting it, together.
Therefore, I don´t want you to worry about me, this is just an anecdote. Let´s forget about the finals we dreamt about, because we will have time to say goodbye. And yes, the time has come to say goodbye, and this is how the road ends for me – unforgettable and marvelous, from beginning to end.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
