A former ÖFB player hangs up his football boots

A former ÖFB player hangs up his football boots

Experienced Christophe Surer ends his active football career!

His current club, SC Pinkafield, made the announcement in a Facebook post on Saturday. The former ÖFB player has completed his entire career in Austria, and the 38-year-old saw his peak at LASK between 2007 and 2010.

During this time, the Vienna native was called up to the ÖFB squad for his only international match, in a 2-0 defeat to Sweden on 11 February 2009.

However, the midfielder was unable to really assert himself at SK Rapid. Eventually, after a loan to Wiener Neustadt and several months without a club, his active career with fourth division club Pinkafeld ended in 2017.

Sorer is grateful to his teammates

In the past seven and a half years with Burgenland, the former midfielder played 239 matches and scored 99 goals.

“When I first put on my football boots many years ago, I never thought this day would come. Every step, every goal, every match made me the player and person I am today. I'm grateful for the memories.” For the friendships I have made and the lessons I have learned, I would like to thank my family for their support, without them this journey would not have been possible.” Sorer finds words of praise and thanks to his companions.

In the return match against Bad Sauerbrunn, the 38-year-old, who is aiming to score a 100th goal for Pinkafeld, will be given another fitting send-off.
