Olympiakos' Brazilian World Cup winner Rivaldo plans to retire at the end of the forthcoming season in Greece.

The former Barcelona midfielder won the World Cup in 2002 and was also voted European and World footballer of the year in 1999.

"I have already made up my mind. This is going to be my last season as a footballer," Rivaldo, 34, told Greek newspaper Protathlitis.

"I want to finish my career in an Olympiakos shirt."

Rivaldo added: "I want to do something great next season and then I will go to Brazil to get some rest."
