    “I'm quite happy with life at the moment. I have always said I would like to go into coaching but I am not in any rush. I am not desperate. If the right job comes along I will look at it. But I have other things. I do technical observer work for UEFA, I do TV. I am still watching a lot of football and am involved in football but I also have a lot of other stuff. I am able to watch my son play football which I have never been able to do. It is a nice balance at the moment. I feel I have all the attributes to be a good coach, a good manager for sure. I spoke to Swansea. It didn't work out. Because I have said I want to go into coaching and management every job that comes up I am linked with..and then I miss out on the job without having spoken to anyone! That's frustrating, but that's football. I don't expect to walk into a job and I have never expected that. Maybe owners and football clubs just look at the football player rather than the work I have done to be a coach. I got my A licence while I was playing, I was the only person to do my pro licence while I was playing. In my eyes I had a fantastic two years under Louis van Gaal. I had a brilliant education as assistant manager of Manchester United. I managed the club for four matches which is invaluable experience. I have done the apprenticeship I have just not done the real thing yet. I have a lot to give after playing at United for 20-odd years, plus my coaching role at United on top. But I am not under pressure to get into a job. I am in a good position. I am happy with life at the moment and if a job comes up, that I am interested in I will look at it, if not, I will get on with doing what I am doing. The technical observer work I do for UEFA at Champions League games is great. I plan to go to visit other sports and other clubs and see how they work and carry on my education but in the meantime I have that nice balance. I have loads on."
