Inter Milan midfielder Luis Figo has plenty of options for his future, but he admits he has not made a decision as to whether or not he will retire at the end of the 2008-09 campaign.

"I'm in the middle of my decision process, but for now it's better not to talk about it as there are still matches that need to be won," the playmaker told Gazzetta dello Sport. "I will remain in football, because my life has developed through this world. I'm still not sure what I will do, it will depend on the options."

However, the player was quick to deny reports that he will be working alongside compatriot Jose Mourinho on the Nerazzurri bench next season.

"Deputy to Mourinho? I don't know where people hear these things," shrugged the former Barcelona and Real Madrid star. "For the next few years, I'm not thinking of a career on the bench as it has many more pressures than being a player."

The 36-year-old has contributed to Inter's success this season, making 22 appearances in all competitions.
