Bastian Schweinsteiger Announced Germany Retirement After 120 appearances
Here are the full statement of his retirement
“I have recently asked the coach to not nominate me for the national team anymore because I would like to retire,” he wrote.
“I was allowed to collect 120 caps for my country and I lived some moments which have been indescribably beautiful and successful.
“Jogi Low knew how much Euro 2016 in France meant to me because I really wanted to win that title we have not been able to win since 1996. “It was not meant to be, I have to accept that.
“By winning the World Cup in 2014 we achieved something on a historic and emotional level that I cannot reproduce in my career.
“That’s why it is right and reasonable to finish it and to wish the team all the best for the qualification for the 2018 World Cup.
“With this decision I leave the national team that has always been a precious family for me. I hope that the connection will still remain strong in one way or the other.
“I would like to say to our fans: ‘It was an honor to play for you guys. Many thanks for everything that we have gone through together’.”
