Basketball: end of career announced for Rudy Fernandez (Real Madrid)

Real Madrid player and captain of the Spanish basketball team Rudy Fernandez announced Thursday at a press conference that he would retire at the end of this season, and after an immense career. Rudy Fernandez in the Spanish capital is: more than 700 matches played and 27 titles won.

“The word retirement is difficult to pronounce. But I've reached a certain age and I'm starting to think about other things, about my family. I have a few months left and I hope I can do my best,” Rudy Fernandez explained to the press on his 39th birthday.

The Real Madrid guard, still in the rotation of the Madrid club twenty years after his debut in the Spanish championship with Badalone, has one of the biggest records in European basketball: 2 world titles, 4 European titles and 2 medals. Olympic silver with Spain, and 6 Spanish championships and 3 Euroleagues with Real.

His final challenges are to offer the twelfth Euroleague in its history to Real and to take Spain to the Olympic tournament in Paris by winning one of the four tickets at stake during the qualifying tournament at the beginning of July.

The most capped player in the history of Spain with 250 caps, Rudy Fernandez says he wants to fulfill the promise he made to his father: that the Paris Olympics be “his last professional tournament”, 20 years after having participated to those of Athens in 2004.
