Ex-APOEL star Fernando Cavenaghi announces shock retirement
Ex-APOEL star Fernando Cavenaghi shocked the football world today after announcing his retirement from professional football.
Cavenaghi, capped four times by Argentina, scored a staggering 23 goals after 26 games for the Cypriot champions, before a serious knee injury forced him to mutually terminate his contract with the club.
Cavenaghi’s recovery from knee surgery was estimated to take more than eight months but it now seems that the 33-year-old has decided to call it quits after a distinguished career.
Prior to APOEL – which proved to be his last club – Cavenaghi played for River Plate, Pachuca, Villarreal, Internacional, Mallorca, Bordeaux and Spartak Moscow.
River Plate published a video on social media showing the O'Brien native back where it all began for him – at Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti Stadium.
In addition to River Plate, APOEL paid tribute to their former star on social media.
