Bernstein not keen on any other role as he gets set to depart FA this summer

David Bernstein admits he is frustrated regarding his impending end to his tenure as the Football Association's chairman.

The FA will force Bernstein to step down this July once he reaches the age of 70 because of a new rule put in place to deny board members remaining involved past that milestone and he insists he will not settle for another role with the association.

"I'm a believer in clean breaks, to be honest. When I left Manchester City, I made a very clean break and I don't want to be spectre at the feast so I doubt it," he said.

"Quite frankly, I'm not even thinking about that. There is six months ahead and it's a really busy six months and I would like for it to go as well as the previous two years."
