Real Madrid legend Raul has announced that he is set to retire from playing football at the end of the season, according to El Confidencial.
The 36-year-old, now at Qatari side Al-Sadd, will end his career after completing his second season with the Middle East outfit.
Club officials had hoped they could persuade the ex-Madridista to remain in Qatar for one more season but the former Roja international has made his decision.
It is now said that he wants to pursue a career in coaching.
