Real Madrid skipper Raul: No retirement plans

Real Madrid captain Raul insists he's set no major goals in regards to his playing future. The 31 year-old said: "Look, I've always lived day to day and do not think about what will happen tomorrow. In my case, I have left this season and another two more years on my contract.

"There it is, my goal, to continue to defend this shield for these next three years and when 2011 arrives it will be time to evaluate everything and analyze the future."

Asked about his relationship with coach Bernd Schuster, Raul added: "I talk a lot with Schuster, it is true, but never about my place in the team. We talk about things regarding the squad as captain.

"But the football decisions are exclusively his - and rightly so."
