Michael Laudrup has revealed that he is at the "final stages" of his career in football management.
Laudrup, who is currently in the dugout at Al Rayyan in Qatar, told reporters that the repetitive nature of football management is becoming "tiring".
"I am in my final stages as a coach, this job in Qatar will be my ultimate or penultimate," he said. "This summer I will be 54, and when I stopped playing in 1998 I never thought that I would be coaching for so long.
"In 2000 I agreed to be Morten Olsen's number two in the Denmark team and I am still going. It is the repetition all the time: training, travelling, call-ups and what I most dislike is the waiting around, at the airport, in the coach at the stadium, in the hotels before playing, the same buffets in the restaurants, this is tiring.
"I also want to live other things in life, the years go by. I don't know whether after as a journalist you can ease off a bit and keep going. I imagine so but as a coach it is hard to take it easy. Comment on the television? I don't know, but I want to live another life and I cannot say whether in a year, two or three."
Laudrup has also managed Swansea City in the Premier League, moving to South Wales in 2012 before leaving the Liberty Stadium almost two years later.
