02 Jun 2013
One of the saddest moments of the night was the conformation that Valerón is leaving Deportivo; he confessed that he’s too tired and that hasn’t decided yet if he will leave the game or not.

Dramatic scenes at the press room of Abegondo; Juan Carlos Valerón faced the media one hour after the relegation of Deportivo and confirmed his departure after thirteen years at the club. President Lendoiro and the whole squad joined him during the conversation with reporters.

The Canarian legend confessed that he leaves the club because he’s tired after so many struggles; still he won’t leave the game, at least not now, though he hasn’t signed yet any contract with other club. "I am here in order to announce that I’m leaving Deportivo La Coruña. My cycle in A Coruña has ended. I'm in pain for what we have lived here tonight." He begun saying.

"I made the decision some weeks ago, sadly we couldn't clinch the goal. With all my love I want to thank you all for everything I lived here. This is not a retirement; just that my stage at Depor has ended. I spent too many years here and I'm tired. I'm at the limit" He added. At this point the player begun to cry and the people at the press room applauded him. "I spent great years here, but the last seasons were too much. I'm tired." He confessed.

The playmaker didn’t confirm what will happen with him now, : "Let's see what happens with my future. Now I must think of what I will do. My future is not decided yet. I leave the door open. I could end leaving the game in the next weeks. I don't know what will happen now. Maybe I will keep playing, but need something different. I need to enjoy."

“Deportivo will always be in my heart."  He added. Then Lendoiro talked as Valerón could barely speak.
