After an exemplary career that has been full of success and great emotions, Barzagli’s career will come to a close in June. It is that of the "La Roccia", Andrea Barzagli, who announced his decision in the post-match against SPAL: "When you are a footballer you find it hard to think about life after football, but this season's injuries helped me to understand. I’ve decided to retire in June,” explains Barzagli.
“And I'm trying to figure out what to do next. I am attracted to various ideas in the world of football, and I will take the time to decide. I have to understand what will interest me and if I can do it well. Playing soccer was my dream as a child. I have to find something that gives me the same enthusiasm.”
He then spoke about the match against SPAL and the youngsters on the pitch in Ferrara: “We wanted to wrap it up today (the Scudetto), also because we had a good game with so many guys on the pitch, going forward in the first half. We only suffered a little bit at the beginning of the second half, but then we recovered well. A pity.”
"In our team there are good guys who want to improve,” added the defender. “I advise them to make themselves available to those who have more experience and always want to improve.”
