Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone reveals that he already has one eye on starting a career as a manager when his playing days are over.

Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone has revealed that he is hoping to begin a career as a manager when his playing days eventually come to an end.

The 27-year-old is currently working towards gaining his UEFA A licence, and he is hopeful that taking the courses now will make the transition into management easier.

"Hopefully I've still got a few years left playing but it's better to have it," Huddlestone told reporters. "It's something I would like to do in the future and I didn't have much planned in the summer, so it was ideal to get it started.

"It's easier to get the badges while you're still playing, rather than be out of the game for four or five years and suddenly decide you want to get them because a few of your ideas might have been lost.

"While you still have fresh ideas and ways of playing, I think it's a good idea to get them done."

Huddlestone and his Hull teammates host an in-form Southampton side at the KC Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
