Raúl talks about retirement

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Real Madrid captain Raúl González admits he could only have two or three years left of his career and will start thinking about when to retire at the end of next season.

Raúl equalled Alfredo di Stéfano's all-time Real goalscoring record as he helped his team to a 2-0 win over Numancia with his 307th goal for Los Merengues.

So far the 31-year-old striker has been at the Bernabéu for fourteen seasons and, although he admits retirement is drawing closer, he claims he still has two or three years to give the club.

"At the moment I still have two more years on my contract," he told Spanish television station Cuatro.

"I think that the end of next season will be the time to think and reflect on what my future will be, and above all how my legs will respond.

"If I'm feeling as I am now, I'm sure I'll continue playing football.

"It's getting closer, but I still have two or three years left at the top level. Then I will look ahead.

"The main thing is to try to go out at the top and that is difficult, because we all think we can continue our form and it is difficult to accept a retirement."
