Figo Ponders Retirement
Reuters, January 25th, 2008 5PM

MOST COMMENTED

Inter Milan winger Luis Figo has been linked with a possible move to Major League Soccer, but the 35-year-old on Thursday revealed that he might choose to retire instead. The Portugal legend is currently recovering from a broken leg suffered in early November, and is believed to be close to regaining fitness.

"Right now, what I want is to recuperate ... and return to play this last part of the season. Then it depends on how I feel. I'll decide what I'm going to do next year and if I stop," Figo told Reuters. "It depends on opportunities to stay too. My thinking was to retire after this year and, of course, then I'm going to have more time for other things."

Figo has a history of changing his mind at the last minute. Last year he signed a contract with Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad only to pull out at the last minute and re-sign with Serie A champion Inter Milan. Inter is still in the running for three major trophies: the club faces Juventus in the Italian Cup quarterfinals (first-leg result: 2-2) and Liverpool in the Champions League second round and remains undefeated and seven points clear at the top of Serie A.
