Trundle: Coaching Role A Great Option In Future

Trundle: Coaching Role A Great Option In Future

Former Swansea City striker Lee Trundle says a coaching role at the club is a 'great option' for the future.

The Swans offered the 33 year-old a coaching role, instead of a new playing contract, but the frontman decided that it wasn't time yet to hang up his boots.

The popular scouser showed his frustration at former manager Paulo Sousa for not telling him sooner that he wouldn't be given a permanent deal.

According to BBC Sport, Trundle looks set for a shock move to local side Neath, with his wages likely to be around £2,000.

He told Sky Sports that it would be great to return to the Swans as a coach in the future:

'It was disappointing not to be offered a playing contract by Swansea, but they did offer me a coaching deal there,'

'However, I still have a lot of years left in me playing-wise and I want to get back to enjoying my football again. So, it was a great option for the future, but not for now.

'It is something that I would like to do after I have hung up my boots, as the coaching side of the game definitely interest me and as you get older you start to think about life after playing the game more.

'It would be great to return to Swansea in a coaching or even management role, but that chapter in my career isn't ready to be started because I still feel I've got a good few years left in my playing career.'

I think we need better coaches than Trundle. What exactly would he teach? How to roll the ball over 1 foot and do a step over? In a few years we'll be looking at others to coach the team. Hopefully be in the Prem when he retires at Neath. I can see him managing in the LoW
