Lloyd, 39, anunció sus planes después de que los EE. UU.. women’s bronze medal match at the Juegos Olímpicos de Tokio, diciendo que ella y su marido son “deseando comenzar este próximo capítulo de nuestras vidas.”
Durante una aparición en el “Goal Podcast“ esta semana, Lloyd was asked why she, like Brady, wouldn’t continue to play despite showing no signs of slowing down.
“Bien, 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.”
Por supuesto, 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, sabes? Being away from home, the travel and, to be quite honest, having to stay at the top and prove people wrong. It is exhausting,” ella continuó. “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.
