For most footballers, hanging up their boots is perhaps the most difficult decision they have to make in their careers. However, there are other cases in which it does not. One of them is Fabio Coentrao, who at 33 years of age completely moved away from the king of sports to dedicate himself to the family business: fishing.

The one who was once European champion with Real Madrid and international with the Portuguese team on multiple occasions, retired in the Rio Ave of his country to return to the sea, one of his greatest loves.

“People who love the sea and who want to experience the sea need to follow their will, their dream. It is also a job for the new generations. Life at sea is not a shame, as many people think. It’s a job like any other “he said in an interview with ‘Empower Brand Channel’.

Fabio Coentrao He grew up in Vila do Conde, a town near the city of Porto, and his family worked at sea. Even during his stay in the ‘merengue’ group he bought his first fishing boat, perhaps thinking about the future. “Of course, I knew that football would one day end and that I should take a new direction in my life. And my happiness is this boat and this is the life I want to lead “, he added to the aforementioned medium.

Football career

The left-hander started his way in football at Rio Ave. Then he went through Benfica (Portugal), Nacional (Portugal), Real Zaragoza (Spain), Real Madrid (Spain), AS Monaco (France) and Sporting de Lisboa (Portugal) .

In addition, it won a Primeira Liga de Portugal, three League Cups, two LaLiga, a Copa del Rey, a Spanish Super Cup, two UEFA Champions League, two Club World Cups and a UEFA Super Cup.
