A great year leaves us… but 2020 will be even better!

Carlos Cuéllar . 30-diciembre-2019

Hi there!

I resume my blog just before the end of year to tell you about what happened to me in 2019. Looking back, it’s been a great year, the truth is I haven’t stopped.

As many of you know already, I quit being a professional football player last summer. I spent quite a lof of time thinking about leaving it, my body was telling me to do so and I wanted to choose the correct time: It was after winning Israel’s Cup with Bnei Yehuda, so I think I hit the spot. For me it was very important to stay with a good taste in my mouth regarding football as a player. Arriving to the training pitch with a smile in my face thinking about the next match was important.

I’m very proud of those more than 500 matches that I’ve played and those 12 clubs for which I’ve played as a professional player. In all of them I found mates and friends. We tried to make a tribute to all of them by making a shirt with all the names of them, a special shirt for my farewell and the truth is that I’ve received plenty of affection since then. The video in which I announced my farewell has more than 250.000 views. I don’t know how to thank you.

Since then I’m trying to spend my time watching all the matches I can, especially at the stadiums, learning and making notes as I’m going to start the coaching course in March. I want to keep on learning and try to transmit everything I’ve learned in more than 20 years of career. I’ve been on every kind of situations and I’m eager to manage and put into practice all that knowledge.

I also want to help to transmit the idea of how important it is to eat healthy. I think it’s a key aspect of your life even if you are not a sportsman or woman. I’m a vegan since 5 years ago and it wasn’t easy with my family this Christmas ;-). But with time you can always prepare something good and complete. I think of veganism as a way of understanding the world because the current consumption of meat isn’t sustainable any more, but I know this is a very personal way of thinking. What I do want to transmit to my players is that a good diet is crucial to perform in the pitch.

I almost forgot: this year I’m also collaborating with Miguel Quintana on his YouTube channel. It’s a format in which I feel very comfortable for it’s tone and the things we talk about. There are also other journalists with which I’ve been preparing new things. You will have news of me soon!

To sum up, this year I’ve been able to truly enjoy my summer holidays and also an end of career that I never dreamt when I was 14 years old when I played for Santo Ángel in Madrid. Again, thank you all. Looking back, it’s been a great year and 2020 will be even better, happy new year!!!
