Tom Brady is still motivated to play despite his retirement coming close

Tom Brady, the New England Patriots quarterback, said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey which aired on Sunday that he still is motivated to play acknowledging the fact that his retirement is closer.

Brady said, “I think about it more now than I used to. I think I’m seeing that there’s an end coming, sooner rather than later.”

He further said that he still loves playing as long as he loves the training and the preparation and is willing to commit. However, he too has kids and does not want to be a father that is not there for driving them to their games. He feels that his kids need his attention now and he wants to be available to them, he further said.

When he was referred to as the ‘greatest of all time’ in the interview, Brady explained that he does not feel comfortable with him being called that way as he still feels there is more to be accomplished. He feels that he can do better and since he has played for a long time does not make him something different.

“I am what I am. I know my strengths. I’ve improved on some of the weaknesses. And I still think I want to go out there and compete and play with a bunch of 22-year-olds. It’s still a lot of fun,” he said.

The interview covered Brady’s early years in his football career. He shared his views about how a great aspect of sports is the way it brings people together. The interview ended with Brady reading out a letter he had earlier posted on social media based on the importance of his will.

Brady also explained how he did not have the same feeling after Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles this year. He said that it him around two to three weeks to recover from the loss.
