Spain legend Raul ended his career with another trophy as he lifted the North American Soccer League title with the New York Cosmos in his final match as a professional footballer.

The 38-year-old, who won six La Liga crowns and three Champions League titles, helped his team beat the Ottawa Fury 3-2 with Marcos Senna, the former Spain and Villarreal holding midfielder, also bringing the curtain down on his career after the match.

Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Raul said: “Of course I have enjoyed clinching these trophies but winning games and titles isn’t the most important thing. What counts and what I will never forget is the love I got from my team-mates, my former team-mates and even players from opposing teams.”

Raul, who also played at Germany’s Schalke and Al Sadd in Qatar, was Real Madrid’s record scorer with 323 goals until last month when Cristiano Ronaldo took over the honour.
