29 year old Ludwigshafen am Rhein born Andre Schürrle, where he played at youth level for Ludwigshafener SC before joining 1.FSV Mainz 05.

It was at Mainz 05 where Schürrle made his senior debut. He left the club to join Bayer 04 Leverkusen and thereafter he went on to play for Chelsea FC, VfL Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund.

But at BVB, Schürrle couldn’t make it as a regular, so he spend time on loan with Fulham FC and Spartak Moscow.

Schürrle in an Instagram post explained his decision to retire:
