Nesta reveals plans to Coach

Italian legend Alessandro Nesta has admitted he is looking to become a Coach once he’s had a break from the game.

The 37-year-old Montreal Impact defender is bringing his playing career to an end after over two decades in the sport.

“I’m very happy because my body is tired,” the former Lazio and Milan man added. “I think it's time to finish.

“I’ve played for 20 years at a high level.

“I’ve been lucky as I won a lot of trophies. And this is the perfect time to say stop. I'll start a new life with my family, another job.

“I’ll now go and live in Miami for a year where I want to learn new things. Once this sabbatical period is over then I want to become a Coach.

“I don’t know where that will be, but I will give it a go.”

The 2006 World Cup winner, 78 caps for Italy, made his Serie A debut for the capital club in 1994. He joined Milan in the summer of 2002.
