The surprising retirement of Martin Hinteregger, at just 29 years old, has convulsed the Bundesliga. Eintracht Frankfurt loses the 'kaiser' that led them to win the Europa League. Therefore, he will not be in the European Super Cup against Real Madrid.
The justification for 'Hinti' to 'hang up his boots' and say goodbye to football has been extremely simple: "I was no longer happy when I won, not even in Barcelona.
The decision to leave football began to mature "in the autumn", but the victory against Barça was a definitive boost for the Austrian centre-back, who had a contract until 2024: "I got on the bus after winning at the Camp Nou and I thought : Now we have to win the Europa League. It's time to start a new life."
Time for new challenges
His life, from now on, will be out of the spotlight: "I am going to disconnect. I have already taken off a large part of the load. Now I am going to dedicate myself to flying in a helicopter and, hopefully, transporting a fan on board" .
