Everton defender Leighton Baines has revealed that he has no plans to pursue a career in football once his playing days are over.

The England international admitted that he rarely follows the game when he is not involved and said that he will not train to become a coach when he retires.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, he said: "As much as I love it, the reason I don't watch or read about it much now is because I am giving everything I can to it. Any bits of time that are my own, I come away from it.

"So when I finish, I think I will get that passion back as I won't be involved in it. I reckon I would go back as a fan, but I'd like to do something else.

"I just want to try a different world, with different people and different experiences."

Baines has 28 England caps to his name.
