Taking up a coaching career is very common amongst ex footballers and footballing legends. Ex players like Zinedine Zidane, Pep Guardiola, Antonio Conte and many others have so far had successful coaching careers and we currently have the likes of Mikel Arteta, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Frank Lampard, Patrick Viera, Steven Gerrard and many others trying to make a name for themselves.
Man Utd legend Patrice Evra recently spoke on his plans for the future and he recently gave an insight on whether or not he intends becoming a football coach anytime soon.
“I finished my coaching licence, it would be selfish of me to not share my knowledge of football one day but right now I’m in a happy place in my life.” the Frenchman told the Manchester United website.
“Being a footballer it’s like being on holiday because you train and you go home. A manager, it’s a different game, it’s a 24 hours job. That’s why some players who were legends think they’re gonna be great managers, so I’m honest with myself.”
“I don’t want to commit myself 100% right now as a coach, so we’ll see. It may come one day, but right now I’m doing stuff that makes me more happy than being a coach.”
Patrice Evra’s latest comments just suggest that he’s ready but patiently waiting for the perfect time to enter into the scene.
