Rafael Marquez insists he is keen to remain with New York Red Bull despite the bitter end to the 2012 season.
The 2-1 aggregate loss has ended New York's campaign but Marquez is already looking forward to next season where he plans to finish his career with a title.
"I want to try and be a champion," said the Mexico international. "It's my last year and I want to be a champion here in MLS.
"We have everything but we need to work. Myself, I start [by trying] to be in good shape."
Regarding the star-studded Red Bull's shortcomings since he joined, Marquez added: "Maybe in these three years, we don't have a good, good team.
"It was always different. One game we play well, the other we play bad. We need to try keep maybe that level and I don't know what's going to happen next year, but we need to try and stay at the same level."
