Raul has said he will return to Real Madrid at some point, but doesn’t feel the time is right as he explores his options following retirement.
The Madrid icon played the final game of his career in November, helping New York Cosmos to victory in NASL Trophy, and speaking at an event in Chile, explained where he sees himself in the long-term.
“Coach Madrid? That’s what everyone asks me. I don’t think it’s time yet. I don’t have a Coach’s license,” he replied, AS reports.
“There’s time. Madrid is my home, has given me almost everything. People recognise me for my time at Madrid despite Schalke and Qatar and the Cosmos.
“Madrid is feeling, my passion, my home and probably at some point in the future I can come back.
“Madrid isn’t about one player. There’ve been many people who have worked and still work for Madrid, even anonymously. We must have that whole experience, the legacy that players leave making history.
“We always have to give the maximum, fighting, without surrender, with fair play. We have to continue the values of Madrid, which are important.”
