Willian Jose not ruling out retirement with Real Sociedad

Real Sociedad forward Willian Jose has not ruled out finishing his career with the club after extended his current contract.

The 26-year-old striker arrived at the Basque club in 2016 and has scored 34 goals in 74 games to date, making him an important part of the team for Asier Garitano.

Having been met with interest from a number of clubs over the summer, La Real have been firm in their approach over a new deal and terms were agreed earlier on Wednesday which saw the Brazilian sign an extension.

The former Real Madrid striker has signed a deal until 2024 and has spoken to Marca about his future and plans moving forward.

“In two years, I have signed three contracts with La Real and this is a very special moment for me.

“When I came, not a lot of people trusted me, there were doubts, but with the work I have done, I have all the fans trusting me. The fans continued to cheer me, even after missing the penalty on Saturday.

“In the summer I have two offers, but I spoke with Roberto Olabe and told him I want to stay here. I would like to make history in this shirt. I will be 33 in six years time and I would like to finish my career here.”

Penalty miss costs La Real as Valencia win

The game started very even but the hosts were handed bad news in the 13th minute when former Newcastle United man Mikel Merino was forced off through injury.

Geoffrey Kondogbia almost instantly scored from that moment but the Frenchman sent his effort straight at Miguel Angel Moya.

Gameiro was then next to have a chance and whilst the French forward had the ball in the back of the net, it was ruled out.

However, the former Sevilla man would make no mistakes moments later as he gave the visitors a lead just before the break.

La Real’s best chance to level the tie came in the second half when Willian Jose had a chance from the penalty spot after Ruben Pardo had been fouled inside the box, but the forward saw his spot-kick miss.
