Raul may only have a few games left in his illustrious career.

Spanish outlet AS reported Wednesday that the New York Cosmos star has told the club that he is considering retiring at the conclusion of the NASL season. According to reports, the wear and tear of the NASL season is catching up with the 38-year-old striker, who is also hoping to spend more time with family in Madrid.

A decision isn’t expected to come just yet, however, as Raul looks to complete the first season of his two-year deal with the club.

Raul has scored seven goals this year for the Cosmos, who currently sit first overall in the NASL combined standings.

What do you think of the Raul reports? Think he has more left to give? Who should the Cosmos go after to replace him if he does leave?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. Raul came late in his career, but he still had the vision to be an effective player in NASL. Growing up he was my favorite player and it was a real highlight seeing him play, even in the twilight of his career. he arguably has the best resume of any player to play in MlS or NASL.

  2. Funny the amount of bashing a club no one cares about seems to get.
    Not sure how you can support a league that (a) even has an AllStar game and (b) puts guys on the AllStar team that haven’t even played a minute in the league. #bushleaguemls
    Quality of #bushleaguemls is on display in the results USNT is getting lately – way to go, 20 years and ZERO player development. #bushleaguemls
    Raul is class, continues the Cosmos tradition. Senna too.
    Sh$tty @ss DPs continue the #bushleaguemls tradition.

      • truth = trolls?
        Funny how, in an article about the Cosmos, the guys attacking Cosmos aren’t called trolls – sorry buddy, but your prejudice is showing.
        Here’s more truth – mls = 20 years of ZERO player development
