Juan Quero hangs up his boots

The 36-year-old winger has announced his retirement due to "a heart problem." It has passed through Numancia, Rayo, Elche, Las Palmas, Córdoba ...


Juan Quero, 36, announced his retirement on Monday. An abrupt and hasty goodbye, since the winger was playing this season at Aranjuez. This is how the Vallecano explained the reasons why he was forced to hang up his boots: "After twenty years as a professional footballer, I am ending my sports career due to a medical problem detected in a routine examination. Bad news that I am trying to digest. It is a cardiac issue and that, if I continue my professional activity as a footballer, it involves a risk to my health, something that I have suffered up to now and that could have caused fatal causes. "

His emotional farewell was not without words of gratitude for all the teams he has passed through. And not just from this continent. "All of them gave me their trust and offered me the opportunity to become who I am today," he said in his statement. Today his cycle as a player closes, but football could continue present (in some way) in his future. "Starting today, I will be a little further away from running with the ball, although I will continue to be linked to this beautiful sport," he concluded.

The response from the clubs was swift. "Much courage! A new stage in your life is beginning and we are convinced that you will achieve all the goals that you set for yourself, go for it!" Las Palmas wrote. The Lightning, for its part, wished him well, sending him "all our strength in this new time of your life. Take care of yourself!" Another Madrid team, Fuenlabrada, also dedicated affectionate words to him: "Your fighting spirit will make you overcome any adversity. Thank you for what you gave us. You will always be part of our history" .

Quero has been active in Alcorcón, Numancia —with whom he was promoted to First and played a campaign in the elite—, Rayo, Elche, Las Palmas, Córdoba, Hercules and Fuenlabrada, with whom he was promoted to Second, among others. In addition, the Vallecano packed his bags and tried his luck in the Emirates (Dubai), Thailand (Buriram United, Chonburi and Ratchaburi), Bolivia (Oriente Petrolero), Malta (Birkirkara) and India (Shivajians and Punjab). A globetrotter who has put an end to his career in Aranjuez, an entity that dedicated a video to him with his best snapshots of the course. Great memories to rebuild a great career.
