Raul is officially going to Qatar

For those of us hoping and praying Raul would come to the US it is time to cry. Our beloved signed with Al Sadd in Qatar. Lovely translated text looks like this:

The official Twitter of Al Sadd Sports Club announced that it has fimado to Raul Gonzalez . The Spaniard has seen the Prince Cup final of the Crown of Catar that Al Gharafa beat Al Sadd. The player had to negotiate with the League, which is responsible to decide which club tab.

It is looking less and less likely that I will ever get to see him play in the flesh. I always knew it was a long shot him coming to the US but I still hoped. It is a sad day.

However I do hope he is happy with his new club. A happy Raul is all we really want. Right?
