Former German world champion Benedict Hofidis announced his retirement from football.

Hovidis, 32, spent the last part of his football career at Lokomotiv Moscow, before hanging his shoes.

“I loved playing football until the last minute,” the former German defender told the magazine “Der Spiegel”.

He added: “This is a difficult decision, but perhaps the Corona virus and playing without fans was the message I was waiting for until I retire.”

And he concluded, “Money is not important to me, I earned enough.”

Hovidis started his football career with Schalke 04, playing for the first team between 2007 and 2017, as he played 335 games in his shirt, scored 23 goals, and led him to win the German Cup, German Super Cup, and reach the 2011 UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

In the summer of 2017, Hovidis went on loan to Juventus for a season, during which he played only 3 games, but he managed to win the local duo with the old lady.

Then he spent the last two seasons of his career in Lokomotiv Moscow, winning with him the Russia Cup and the Russian Super Cup.

Internationally, Hofidis achieved great success, as he was a key individual in the Germany team crowned with the 2014 World Cup on Brazilian soil.

In total, Hofidis fought 44 caps between 2011 and 2017, during which he scored two goals.
