Raúl y Marcos Senna anuncian su retirada del fútbol

Raúl and Marcos Senna have given a joint press conference in which they have both officially announced that they are hanging up their boots. “I decided to sign for Cosmos because of two people, the coach, and Marcos Senna,” Raúl confessed.

Raúl explained “I think now is the right time to retire, I have to look ahead, at other projects. I’m hoping Cosmos will offer me the job of club ambassador, but I haven’t had the offer yet”. The Cosmos player confirmed that “for the time being I’ll continue living here, in New York, with my family and I’ll see what projects turn up here that might interest me. I know that I’ll return to Madrid one day, but not in the immediate future.”

“Two months ago, when I still had a year to go on my contract, I decided that this would be my last season because I felt I’d had enough. My retirement has been staggered, but now at the age of 38, this moment had to come. I know there will be times when I miss it, but I want to finish off this way, with this good feeling. It’s been a great year, I’ve enjoyed being with my team-mates, in this league, at this club, and the soccer. I’m going away from here happy, I would never have imagined that.”

On being asked if he would like to become a coach, he said “If one day I go into coaching, I would like to be in charge of a winning team. But to be a coach there’s a whole long process of studying and training to get a licence, and I haven’t even begun that yet.”

Marcos Senna, for his part, said “I will continue in some football-related capacity, I’m going to take a year to figure out what I want to do. I will be linked to Cosmos as ambassador, and I will go back to Spain.”
