Guillaume Hoarau announces his retirement from professional football

It’s a farewell message that looks like him, both original, touching and quite funny. This Monday morning, Guillaume Hoarau announced, at 38, on his Instagram account that he was ending his career as a professional player, which began in Le Havre, in Ligue 2, in 2004. The tall striker (1.92 m) had notably evolved at PSG (2008-2013) then in Bordeaux (2014), scoring a total of 41 goals in Ligue 1, also playing for the France team in 2010 and 2011 (5 caps, 0 goals).

Hoarau “closes the loop” at Saint-Pierroise

For the past two seasons, Hoarau has been playing for Sion, after a long tenure with Young Boys Bern (2014-2020, 118 goals in 188 appearances in all competitions). On his Instagram account, the striker thanks all those who have helped him throughout his career, and specifies: ” I loved my job which motivated me until the last moment. I’m leaving being in agreement with myself, I’m leaving to close the loop where it all began! »

Indeed, Hoarau confirms in this message that he is joining the Jeunesse Sportive Saint-Pierroise, the amateur club of Saint-Pierre de la Réunion where he was trained. Known for his ability to blend into a locker room and for his sense of humor, the former Parisian concludes his farewell note to professional football with an astonishing play on words: ” Where does Messi go when he gets injured? Bein at the Pharmessi!!!! ».
