Batistuta is now living in Perth with his family and says: "It's wonderful where I live for several reasons. The people respect eachother. Here, it isn't necessary to bustle past anybody. You queue up, people are nice and respectful. No-one invades your space.
"People let you get on with your life. There's also security. Australia is generally a good country to live in."
Batistuta now avoids football and is passionate about golf: "I love it. I try to play as much as I can."
But he still has one ambition left in the game: "Clearly, I would like to coach the (Argentina) national team."
