The news fell on Thursday. After Hugo Lloris, Steve Mandanda or even Blaise Matuidi, Raphaël Varane has decided to end his adventure with the Blues. An international retirement pronounced at only 29 years old but intervening after several injuries in recent months. Asked about this, Lloris also paid a very nice tribute to the Manchester United defender. “I knew he was going in that direction. After Blaise (Matuidi), Steve (Mandanda), it is a new important pillar that stops. We can only say bravo to him for all he has accomplished with the Blues. It was an honor to play with him, to participate in so many meetings with him, and to have been able to rely on the player and the man to such an extent.thus launched the last bastion of the Spurs before adding.

“He will have been a real leader, with a fairly reserved personality, a quiet strength who expressed himself wisely. I remember very well his first appointments in the spring of 2013: I said to myself, right away, that we were going to spend time together (smiles). He was mature despite his young age, we already felt the player he was going to become. At the time, it was rare to see defenders of this size go so fast, and Raph could perfectly cover the spaces behind his back: it was something new. In ten years, we will have spent a lot of time together. We have always trusted each other, and we have always been complementary. Raph has always been altruistic, focused on the success of the team. But he still has good years ahead of him.concluded the 36-year-old goalkeeper in remarks relayed by The Team.
