Soccer star Carli Llyod dismisses comparisons amid retirement plans: 'Tom Brady doesn't have to have kids'

Lloyd, 39, announced her plans after the U.S. women’s bronze medal match at the Olimpiese Spele in Tokio, saying that she and her husband arelooking forward to starting this next chapter of our lives.

PATRIOTS’ BILL BELICHICK ON TOM BRADY PLAYING UNTIL 50: ‘IF ANYBODY CAN DO IT, IT’S HIM’

During an appearance on theGoal Podcast hierdie week, Lloyd was asked why she, like Brady, wouldn’t continue to play despite showing no signs of slowing down.

“Wel, Tom Brady doesn’t have to have kids, that’s the one thing for starters!” she replied. “My husband, Brian, and I are eventually going to start a family so the clock’s kind of ticking on that.

I don’t think every athlete gets the opportunity to dictate when they go out, to dictate if they’re happy or not, to dictate if they’re on top or not. I’ve always wanted my career to be dictated on me making the decisions. This just felt time for me.

Natuurlik, Lloyd is talking about starting her family but it’s important to note Brady, 44, does have three children.

It gets to be a little tiring, jy weet? Being away from home, the travel and, to be quite honest, having to stay at the top and prove people wrong. It is exhausting,” vervolg sy. “It takes endless work, day in and day out and I’m just ready to kind of shift gears and start this next chapter and live my life and do a lot of things that I’ve put on hold for so many years.

Brady himself seems to be far away from retirement. He recently said he sees himself being able to play football until 50.
