Leighton Baines sees future away from football?

Leighton Baines says that he sees himself away from the game of football once he retires.

Leighton Baines has revealed that he sees his future away from the game of football once he retires.

The Everton and England left-back admits that he wants to "try something else" once he hangs up his boots.

However, the 29-year-old recently signed a four-year deal extension with Everton and is not ready to retire just yet.

"As much as I love it - the reason I don't watch or read about it now is because I am giving everything I can to it - any bits of time that are my own, I come away from it," Baines said, according to Sky Sports News.

"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, different experiences."

Baines is likely to feature in the Merseyside derby this weekend.
