After 17 years, former EuroLeague champion with Barcelona, Victor Sada, announced his retirement from basketball.

“I wanted to do it basically to say thank you. Thanks to Barça for being able to act here, I consider Palau my home. I’m 34 years old and I’ve spent 17 years at Barça, it’s half my life. Thanks also to all the people, players, friends,” said Sada, per Mundo Deportivo.

The last years of a player are hard and mine have also been. When I left Andorra, a cross was placed on me. I had a tough situation with my partner and I decided to stay by her side and help her in whatever was needed. Life is much more important than basketball, although we live life through it. I had two important offers but I rejected them. I would do it again, Elena,” added the 2010 EuroLeague champion.

Sada also won the 2011 EuroBasket title with the Spanish national team and the silver medal in the 2012 Summer Olympics.
