Everton star Tim Cahill says he wants to continue to work in football long after he retires from the game, hinting that he may choose to move into a coaching role with the Toffees.
Cahill currently has a football skills school in Australia, and the star is clearly considering moving into that line of work permanently when his time at Everton comes to an end.
“I definitely want to remain involved in football – it has been my life for so long now and I don’t know what I would do without being involved in some shape or form,” Cahill said.
“Management would definitely be something I would consider when I decide to call it a day as a pro.
“I have learned so much since I began playing in England and I would love the opportunity to pass some of this information on to other players .”
Cahill has been a stalwart for Everton for the last eight years, and the playmaker isn’t planning on going anywhere, despite continual speculation of offers from the big six clubs.
"The chairman knows my thoughts, I will sign here for life,'' Cahill recently said.
"He knows my thoughts on what I love about this club. I respect everyone so much and hopefully I am here for a long time.''
Fans will be hoping that if Cahill does move into management, he will decide to do so at Everton to impart his knowledge to younger players in the Toffees squad.
