It is the end. Two days ago, Borussia Dortmund announced in a press release that they had terminated the contract of André Schürrle, recruited for 30 million euros by the BvB in 2016, but who had never managed to win among the Marsupials (33 matches, 3 goals). Loaned to Fulham and then to Spartak Moscow for the past two seasons, the striker trained in Mainz was believed to have to go in search of a rebound club. China and Russia were even mentioned. But it will not be. The player decided to end his football career.

“The decision has matured in me for a long time,” said the 29-year-old to the Der Spiegel newspaper .

Not spared by injuries, the 2014 world champion with the Mannschaft (assists in the victorious goal by Mario Götze in the 113th minute of the final against Argentina) reveals having had ups and downs, “lows which became more and more deep and less and less highs”, and admits that he is no longer able to meet the high expectations of the professional world.

“You always have to play your part to survive in the club and in the world of football in general, otherwise you lose your place and you have no chance of finding one elsewhere,” said Schürrle, who concludes a career started with a title of champion of Germany U19 with Mainz in 2009.
