Esteban CAMBIASSO has announced his retirement.
Former Argentina international and Inter legend Esteban CAMBIASSO has called it a day. The 37 year old midfielder last played for Greek club Olympiacos but has had a massive career.
A product of Argentinos Juniors, Cucho played in five different leagues, reaching the pinnacle of his career with Internazionale in Italy when he won a historic treble with the club. At senior level, CAMBIASSO played with Independiente and River Plate in Argentina, Real Madrid in Spain, Internazionale in Italy, Leicester City in England and finally Olympiacos in Greece.
A total of 21 trophies won in his club career included (and obviously not limited to) a La Liga and UEFA Super Cup trophy with Real Madrid as well as a UEFA Champions League trophy, five Serie A titles and a Club World Cup with Internazionale. In Greece, CAMBIASSO ended his career on a high note winning back to back Superleague titles.
Esteban CAMBIASSO and Argentina
With his country, CAMBIASSO will forever be remembered as the goalscorer of one of the (depending on who you ask)) nicest team goals ever scored at a World Cup after rounding off a lovely play which consisted of 24 passes at the 2006 World Cup against Serbia and Montenegro. Oh and don’t worry, we have the clip of the goal below! He won two South American Youth Championships with Argentina in 1997 and 1999 and the big one at youth level, the 1997 World Cup.
An excellent midfielder and not a bad eye for goal either (90 goals in 702 matches for a defensive midfielder), it’s fair to say Esteban CAMBIASSO has left his mark on the beautiful game. Obviously for a player like CAMBIASSO, statistics won’t do him justice. A true professional, he was the back bone for Inter when they were dominating the Serie A and especially when they won the Champions League back in 2010.
Thank you for everything, Cuchu!
