Departing Real Madrid captain Marcelo doesn't see himself entering coaching.
At his farewell ceremony yesterday, Marcelo intimated he expects to play on next season.
He said, “I don't think that I've got what it takes to become a coach. I can't see me doing that. There are other things that I'm better at. To be honest, I've never understood tactics and have just enjoyed playing football. I don't have the same desire to become a coach as I did to become a player.
"I'm a big fan of the academy. I'm aware of how they look after the young players here, how they train and I know virtually everything about how the academy set-up works. I also know how the first team works and that when the young players are promoted to the first team it's a massive sete-up. The future is promising for us."
Marcelo's son is now coming through La Fabrica.
He added: "When I watch him play, I turn into a different person. It's crazy. I can't put it into words. Watching him compete for this club is the greatest thing I've experienced as a father."
