Today is very difficult for me personally, because my football career will end on Saturday around 5.15pm. It's a pretty difficult step and it's hard for me to talk about it, but it's the right decision. 15 years in professional football have left their mark and I have to honestly judge what I can and cannot do. In the end, the gratitude for all that I have been able to feel is stronger than everything”, Khedira said.
On this season Khedira collected only 8 presences, never from the beginning.
