Atletico Madrid captain Gabi has left the club to play for Qatari side Al Sadd.

Gabi , who won one La Liga title, two Europa League gongs, one UEFA Super Cup, one Copa del Rey and one Spanish Super Cup with Atleti, has left La Liga on a free transfer following the expiration of his contract.

“This is a difficult and emotional day for me,” Sky Sports News quotes the 34-year-old defender as saying.

“It’s been the hardest moment of my career. This club is a lifestyle for me.”

Gabi finished two spells with Atletico, with a stint at Real Zaragoza sandwiched between them.
