CAIRO – 7 May 2019: Atletico Madrid Uruguayan Captain, Diego Godin, confirmed on Tuesday that he will leave the team at the end of the season to put an end to his career inside the Spanish club.
Godin has been linked with a move to Italian giants, Inter Milan.
Godin said during a press conference "I'm a little nervous, much more than I am before a game, but I have called everyone here to inform you that these are my final days at the club,"
Godin, 33, joined the team in 2010 from Villareal and since then he established himself as one of the key players at the team defense.
Atletico Madrid president, Enrique Cerezo, sent a farewell message to Godin saying “You have fought in a thousand battles and defended the club's shirt in every game and you have worn the captain's armband. Wherever you end up, Atletico wishes you a lot of luck.”
Godin represented the club in 387 games and scored 27 goals for the team known as Los Rojiblancos including a goal against Barcelona at the league in 2014 which secured their first league title since 1996.
