Okocha not planning a move into coaching

Jay-Jay Okocha is planning to walk away from football when he retires from the game.

Bolton's gifted playmaker intends to look at other opportunities after he quits.

Okocha, 32, said: 'I have no plans to go into coaching, no, not at the moment.

'There will be so many exciting other things to do when I retire.

'I have been in football all my life so I would like to try something else.'

Not that Okocha is ready to call it a day just yet. The former Nigeria captain's immediate future is unclear as he is out of contract in the summer.

Okocha has been linked with a move away from the Reebok Stadium and could pitch up in Qatar next season.

He added: 'I believe I can still play at a high level for another two or three years if I can steer clear of injury.

'For the moment, though, my priority is finishing the season well and trying to get Bolton back into Europe.'
