Dario Scuderi has made the decision to retire from football, three years after his injury.
Scuderi joined Borussia Dortmund back in 2010, and quickly showed his immense potential, by moving from the junior teams to becoming a part of the U-19s in 2016.
However, on 14 September, 2016 he suffered a horrific leg break in a UEFA Youth League match against Legia Warsaw. He was operated on nine times in the months that followed, and it was after this it was decided that he would never play again.
But Scuderi made a remarkable return to training in May 2018 continued his road to recovery by making the substitutes’ bench in a reserves friendly match against Lüner SV three months later. He was named on the bench for the U-23s in their competitive game against Wuppertal SV last month.
“Obviously it was something very special for me after such a long time out. For a long time it wasn’t clear what would happen or where things would go. It’s unbelievable to have made it back into the squad. I’m simply delighted, I’ve trained a lot and happy to be back in the squad today.” Scuderi on his return.
Unfortunately, Scuderi has come to a conclusion that the risks of an injury are far too great, and he has decided to call time on his playing career. Despite the disappointing news, the 21 year old was already looking forward to the future by starting to train at the BVB football school.
