Diego Lopez 'considering his future'

Lopez looks set to become a coach in the future, but will that be at Milan?

Milan's injured goalkeeper Diego Lopez is heavily considering a future in coaching as reported by Mike Lazar over at Gazzetta.

Having endured a blow to his health after being diagnosed with tendonitis in his left knee as well as the rise of teenage prodigy Gianluigi Donnarumma, it certainly seems Lopez might be done with playing 'keeper at Milan sooner rather than later. Not one to let his injury stop him from working hard, Lopez has allowed Milan's coaching staff to have a positive effect on his career development - which is pretty much the best thing that could have happened during this period for Diego.

"I have enjoyed working under all of them. I like their job and hope to become a coach myself."

In a twist of fate, it may look like Lopez will play a role in the continuing development of Donnarumma, but that's only if the Spaniard chooses to stay at Milan instead of pursuing a number one spot between the sticks elsewhere.
