Raul, 33, joined the German club in the summer after spending his entire professional career at Real, having come through the youth system at Atletico Madrid.

And the former Spain international bears no grudges over his exit, revealing he expects to work for Los Merengues in 2012.

"When I finish my playing career I want to return to Real Madrid," he told La Stampa. "But until 2012, I'm not thinking about it.

"I decided to leave - not (coach) Jose Mourinho. He wanted me to stay."
