Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz retires at 39

May 26, 2020 16:02 IST

On Wednesday Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz announced his retirement at the age of 39 citing health concerns. The Spanish footballer needs a hip replacement and with a heavy heart, Aduriz said that unfortunately, his body had said enough. Aduriz is the oldest player to score for Spain in an international. The La Liga player sighs for not being able to end his career at a high note due to the pandemic. Aduriz has scored 141 goals in 296 appearances for Bilbao and has also played for Valencia and Mallorca.
