Rafael Varane (29, Manchester United) resigned himself from the French national team at an early age.
Baran announced his retirement from the French national soccer team on the 2nd (Korean time). He said through personal social media (SNS), “Playing as a French national player for 10 years was one of the most honorable things in my life. He was filled with pride whenever he wore the French blue jersey. However, after thinking about it for the past few months, he decided to retire from the national team.”
“I will never forget the moment I won the 2018 World Cup in Russia. It is the most memorable moment of my entire life. After losing in the final of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, I am grateful to the fans who comforted us by calling us heroes.”
Baran’s decision to retire is for a ‘generational change’. “Now a new generation of players has to take over the national team,” Baran said. France has many young and talented players. It is time to hand it over to them,” he explained. 카지노
Varane made his A-match debut for France in 2013 at the age of 19. Since then, he has played in 93 A matches for 10 years. The French national team accomplished the achievements of winning the World Cup once, runner-up once, and Euro runner-up once during the period when Baran was used as the main axis.
As Baran posted a long post on social media, Manchester United legend Ferdinand left a short comment. Ferdinand called Baran “a legend.” Man United fans left an opinion below, saying, “I hope Baran will succeed Ferdinand as a Manchester United legend defender.”
Baran’s decision to retire from the national team is good news for Manchester United. This is because an environment was created in which Baran could fully focus on the club team. Varane, who moved to Manchester United from Real Madrid in the summer of 2021, has made 47 appearances so far. Immediately after the acquisition of Baran, it is evaluated that Manchester United’s defensive power has become solid.
