Inter’s Esteban Cambiasso has doubts that he will go into coaching once his playing career comes to an end.
Although the midfielder has no immediate plans to quit the game, the 32-year-old doesn’t know whether his leadership skills on the pitch would be as good on the sidelines.
“I don’t know about a coaching career,” he told Inter Channel. “I'm not even sure what skills you need…
“When you think about that job you think of someone with tactical nous, but actually the Coach is someone who needs to manage a group of 25 individuals and I don't take that aspect lightly.
“When you're a Coach you have to deal with different personalities every day.”
The South American joined the Italian club in 2004 after a two-year stint with Real Madrid, but he has no regrets about how his Spanish adventure ended.
“I can only be thankful given the way things went,” he added. “It meant I took the best decision of my life, football-wise.
“I'm not the sort of guy who nurtures resentment. I believe in destiny – they didn't want me that much, Inter came in and wanted me immediately.
“Fortunately our paths met and now we're here.”
