Cole says he hopes to stay in the game after he stops playing but as a scout rather than as a manager.
He said on Chelsea TV: "It's not really in my character to be ordering people about. I am looking for a scouting job to be honest.
"I enjoy watching football. It would be nice to watch the young players play, hopefully scout a few players and watch them on to international level."
