Figo dismisses Mallorca speculation

Portuguese legend will not be postponing his retirement

Luis Figo has made it clear that he will not be coming out of retirement to play for the islanders.

The former FIFA World Player of the Year officially retired from football at the end of last season after four seasons with Inter Milan.

A reported salary of 3.5m euros per season was on offer for the 36-year-old winger, who has also played in Spain for both Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Speaking to reporters in Portugal Figo said “I’ve heard about the interest but the person who it came from isn’t even the president of the club yet.”

“My assistant knows about the interest from Mallorca, but at this moment my priority is to rest and I’m not thinking about getting back on the pitch.”

“If I wanted to continue playing football I’d have continued playing for Inter Milan.

“My future involves a different professional activity. I can’t say more at the moment, but after hanging up my boots it’s logical that I’m not going to stand still.”
