Bundesliga’s TVR Rottenburg has announced in its official website that its player Phillip Trenkler has retired from volleyball due to a back injury. Phillip, who is only 25 years of age, spent his entire professional career in Germany, and was also present in many of the country’s youth national teams.

Here is what the player had to say:

“It was the hardest decision of my life to say goodbye to competitive sports at the age of 25. The risk of the pain recurring was ultimately too high. I did not think that the injury would last so long. The progress in the end was not what I wanted it to be. That’s why I could not be used in the season. Volleyball was the most important part of my life. The fact that in the end I was able to play effectively only one season here in Rottenburg, annoys me very much.  Although, I feel better and I’m free of complaints on activities related to everyday life.”

TVR’s current coach Peter Müller-Angstenberger has stated that he hopes Phillip is able to remain with the team in some other function:

“Phillip was considered throughout his youth as one of the best German talents and was captain of the youth national team. I am extremely sorry for him. Once again, you can see how much athletes depend on their body. I hope Phillip stays with us in a different way. “

Such an end to a young career is always met with sadness by fans of the sport. We at VolleyMob wish Phillip luck is future endeavors.
