Germany’s World Cup winner Benedikt Hoewedes said Friday that he will retire at age 32 for family reasons.

He made 44 appearances for Germany in the center and the winger and played every minute to succeed in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

He played more than 330 times for Schalke before spending the 2017-18 season on loan at Juventus and then moving to Lokomotiv Moscow for two seasons. The Russian club agreed to release Hoewedes from his contract in June.

“I was recently with my wife and son in a campervan in southern France,” Hoewedes told Der Spiegel magazine in an interview published on Friday.

“I noticed how happy I was to see my son by my side. Football seemed so unimportant. “

“My son is 21 months old and during my time in Moscow I couldn’t enjoy it. And I suffered from that,” he said.

“It’s hard to take the plunge, give up playing in front of sold-out stadiums. Perhaps this period with the coronavirus and these ghostly coincidences was an omen.”

Hoewedes also criticized the “brutal” development of soccer, which “is moving further and further away from fans.”

He is the seventh 2014 world champion to hang up his boots. Two weeks ago, former Borussia Dortmund player Andre Schuerrle surprisingly retired at the age of just 29.
