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."
