By Henrik Petersen

Raffael confirms that he has attracted interest from his home country.


Raffael admits he has received a number of offers from the Brazilian Serie A after leaving Borussia Mönchengladbach at the end of his contract.

Speaking to Rheinische Post, the 35-year-old confirmed reports that Botafogo, Atletico Paranaense and Ceara SC have contacted his agent.

"That's true, but I don't want to say any more about it," Raffael said.

The Brazilian veteran tells Sport Bild that he would like to keep playing football for a season or two. When he hangs up his boots, he would like to take on a job at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

"That would be a dream come true for me. I hope it will be possible to return to Borussia after my active career."

Raffael spent seven seasons at Borussia-Park, making 201 appearances with 71 goals and 35 assists to his name.
