Unhappy Raul committed to Real

MADRID - Real Madrid striker Raul is unhappy with his lack of playing time this season but remains committed to the club in his 16th season.

"Sooner or later this moment had to come ... it's not the ideal situation for any player," the 32-year-old Raul, who made his first-team debut in October 1994, said at a news conference on Tuesday.

"At the moment my present is with Real Madrid ... I want to focus on the team and the two competitions in which we are still alive," he added. "There will be time later on to speak about my future and what may happen."

Raul has started just seven league games this season, according to the club's website, playing 816 minutes and scoring three goals.
