World cup winner Andre Schurrle has announced his shock retirement from football age 29.
The ex-chelsea start left Dortmund after cancelling his contract to look for a new club. But the 57 cap Germany international who help the to win world cup glory just six years ago in Brazil has opted to hang up his boots.

I don't need the applause anymore he added in a lengthy interview you always have to play a certain role in order to survive in the business, otherwise you will lose your job and you not got a new one.
Schurrle still had one year on his contract with Dortmund when the deal was cancelled this week.
