After nearly two decades and more than 500 games in various competitions in professional football, the time has come for me to open a new chapter in my life. Today marks the end of my professional football career, which has given me so many wonderful experiences and friendships.

Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have supported and accompanied me over the years. I will miss you and your support!

What I will be doing from here on out is not fully clear yet. Surely, I will involve myself in some of the projects I was able to launch in recent years with the help of my partners and friends. DB Sports is one of those projects, as is the sports business and athlete platform Sportlifeone. I am looking forward to what lies ahead – even though I will most certainly also miss football.

All the best,
