Pepe Reina says he wants to be a coach someday, not just someday soon.

Saying to Onda Cero:

I want to enjoy my football for the next three years and then I’ll study to become a winning Coach in the future.

Would I coach Real? Maybe if the chance came up… There are teams like Barcelona, who formed me not only as a player but also as a person, yet Real are the dream of any Coach.

Reina has played not only for Barcelona in Spain, but also for Villarreal before going to the club where he really broke onto the world football scene, Liverpool. From Liverpool he went to Napoli and Bayern Munich, and now he’s at Milan for the twilight of his career. He’s got valuable experience, and who knows, if he decides to go into coaching, Milan might be an option.

Of course if he does ever come to be the manager at Milan, I’d advise him to rent, not buy.
