Chicago Fire midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has announced his retirement from professional football.

In a statement released on social media Schweinsteiger announced his decision and thanked his former teams as well as his wife, former tennis player Ana Ivanovic.

“Saying goodbye as an active player makes me feel a little nostalgic, but I am also looking forward to the exciting challenges that await me soon,” he said. “I will remain faithful to football. Many, many thanks for the time we spent together, I will always have a place for you in my heart.”

Schweinsteiger and Ivanovic welcomed their first child in March 2018 and had a second boy this August.

Schweinsteiger, 35, was best known for his time with Bayern Munich and Germany but also spent a brief spell at Manchester United between 2015 and 2017.

He won eight Bundesliga titles and seven German cups with Bayern as well as the 2013 Champions League.

Germany coach Joachim Low called Schweinsteiger “one of the greatest German players ever.”

He added: “A big player, a huge personality. Always honest, always emphatic.” (ESPN)
