AC Milan midfielder De Jong wants to remain in football after retirement

AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong wants to remain in the game after retirement.

The Dutchman was speaking with Forza Milan.

"It's hard to imagine that I will totally abandon football - I love playing, I love to train every day, I love the smell of the grass on the field.

"I do not know how many of us realise what good fortune we have in this profession, which is the secret dream of every boy in life.

"So I believe that no matter what I choose to do, it is not going to be something completed unrelated to football."
