Former footballer and captain of Atletico Madrid Gabi announced his retirement.
“When I started playing football, I never thought that my dreams could come true. Today is the day to put an end to and finish my football career,” Gabi wrote on his Instagram page.
In addition, the player thanked all the people who helped him build such a successful football career. He noted that football gave him the opportunity to remain in people’s memory.
Together with Atletico Madrid, Gabi twice won the Europa League, became the champion of Spain, as well as the winner of the Spanish Cup, Spanish Super Cup and UEFA Super Cup. He also played twice in the Champions League final, but never lifted the trophy over his head.
Since the summer of 2018, he played for the Qatari “Al-Sadd”, in which he won the Qatar Cup.
