Until about three years ago, Kobi Moyal was still a prominent Israeli footballer who tried his luck overseas and played in the American New York Cosmics. Today (Monday) announced the end of his career at the age of 34.
Moyal, who returned from the United States to Hapoel Katamon Jerusalem and then played for Jeremiah Holon in the first division, retired via a post on his Facebook page, in which he wrote: Family, friends and dear fans – the time has come to say thank you. After 17 years, I retire from football! “
“I get chills and mixed feelings that I write these words, but every good thing has an end. Today I am 34 years old and when I look back the only word I have to sum it all up is first of all thank you! Thank God for the privilege he has given me to be “Part of this game, about the opportunity to make all many people happy during my career, about the privilege he gave me to be part of the club I grew up in and which I am a fan of, as well as in other leading clubs, in Israel and around the world,” Moyal wrote.
Moyal is also credited with one appearance in the Israeli national team uniform, in a friendly match in 2014 against Honduras, and he also addressed this in the exciting retirement announcement – but surprised when he mentioned what was most important to him: “I say thank you for the amazing moments, cultures, languages and experiences. “Throughout my career. Thank you for unforgettable titles, taking part in championships, trophies, playing in European factories and meeting big teams around the world and of course wearing the Israeli national team uniform, but without a doubt the most important title for me is to finish a full career without a red card.”
