Inter midfielder Arturo Vidal has ambitions of going into coaching when his playing days are over, with the Chilean hoping to complete his preparations to become a manager after he hangs up his boots.
Speaking to Chilean broadcaster TNT Sports, the 34-year-old spoke about his career ambitions as his playing days wind down, and indicated that he is already strongly considering making the move into coaching.
Vidal has enjoyed success as a player, winning league titles across three different leagues, and he has continued his playing success with Inter by winning his fifth Scudetto last season after winning four in a row at Juventus.
The Chilean has also won the Copa America twice with Chile, and has ambitions to stay in football beyond his playing days, which could be close to their end given his age.
The Chilean indicated that he intends to take a coaching course once his playing career is through, stating that “It’s something I want to do now. When I leave football, I will decide what I want to do and I will have several options. I have several ideas in my head, good coaches who have left their mark on me, I see and feel the game like a coach.”
