It’s been a little over a year since Ivory Coast won the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations as they overcame Ghana in a match that had to be decided with a penalty session.
Salomon Kalou helped out his national team in sealing this silverware as he performed in a number of matches but he was mostly used as a substitute player more than anything else.
Kalou had to settle with a few minutes of playing time in certain games and taking into consideration the role that he is playing with Ivory Coast which isn’t that significant, he is starting to think about retiring from performing at the international stage as Kalou wants to focus the remainder of his career by winning titles and matches with his club Hertha BSC.
“I won the Africa Cup of Nations and played in two World Cups. But you have to think about it if it is the right moment to stop. Last year was a tough year and also I was away at the Africa Cup of Nations but I learned a lot. This season I am aiming to score at least 15 goals.” Salomon Kalou said as the Ivorian player stated that he is starting to think about resting his body and playing fewer games from this point on.
Salomon Kalou has been performing with Hertha BSC since 2004 and he hasn’t lifted any significantly big title with the German club and this is another one of the reasons of why Kalou just wants to completely focus in winning games with his club and help them adding titles to their collection and Kalou wants to avoid getting distracted with anything else other than his club.
The contract of Kalou with Hertha BSC expires in 2017 and he wants to work hard to make an impact with the time that is remaining for him with the German outfit.
