Gonzalo Castro officially announced the end of his career on Friday. The five-time German A national player hangs up his professional shoes.

The German-Spaniard was in the Bundesliga in 421 games for Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund, VfB Stuttgart and until the summer at Arminia Bielefeld. Castro scored 38 goals and 80 assists in the German upper house.

The 2009 U21 European champion announced his success on Instagram career end: "With great joy, pride and melancholy, it is now time for me to look back on 17 years of professional football! It was an incredibly emotional journey in which I always tried to enjoy and appreciate everything," he said.

After many thanks, he ended his statement with a wink: "I could probably thank a lot more people here, but as you know I'm not necessarily the man of many words (rather yellow cards). So thanks for everything, it was me an honour."
