And while Monreal admitted his knee had forced him out of the game, he remained stoic in his decision to retire.

“Do I get mad? NO! I listen to it and accept the situation and thank it for everything.”

Monreal also played with Osasuna and Malaga at the start of his career before moving to the Premier League, and made 22 appearances for Spain.
