Raul Gonzalez open to coaching role in future
Retiring New York Cosmos forward Raul Gonzalez has said he might want to come back to previous club Real Madrid sooner or later, yet that day stays far away later on.
Raul scored 323 objectives in 741 amusements in 16 seasons as a Madrid player, a record just as of late beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo.
The previous striker has been distinguished by a few intellectuals in Spain as a potential mentor who could have a comparable effect to his previous universal partner Pep Guardiola at Barcelona.
The Madrid-local left the Bernabeu in 2010 for Schalke in the midst of an evident breakdown in his association with club president Florentino Perez, yet later reports have guaranteed their relationship is currently better.
At a news meeting the 38-year-old said that when the time is correct he would return “home,” yet would not say when that may be.
“Real Madrid is my home and some day the moment will come to return,” Raul said. “But it will not be in the near future, although there is continuous contact.”
The former Spain international said he had not yet taken his coaching badges, and his immediate priority was to spend some quality time with his family after over 20 years playing as a professional.
“I do not feel a coach, nor am I thinking now about being one in the next few years,” he said. “At the moment I want to be a father and a person.
“To be a coach you need to go through a training process I have not yet started, but I would like to coach a winning team. [For now] I will stay living in New York with my family, open to a new life, open to many possibilities.”
