Esteban Cambiasso, the face of Argentina’s midfield in the 2000s, is reportedly calling time on his career as a professional footballer.

According to TyC Sports, the 37-year-old is hanging up his boots and will be putting on a manager’s sweatshirt instead. El Cuchu last took the pitch at Olympiacos, which he joined on a free transfer in 2015 after deciding not to renew his contract at Leicester City. The Legend uploaded a video on Friday to say “thank you.”
