The Australian says he is already thinking about following David Moyes into management, as he enters the twilight of his playing career.
"I definitely want to remain involved in football - it has been my life for so long now and I don't know what I would do without being involved in some shape or form!" he told the Liverpool Daily Post.
"Management would definitely be something I would consider when I decide to call it a day as a pro.
"I have learned so much since I began playing in England and I would love the opportunity to pass some of this information on to other players and hopefully be a successful manager and win some trophies!"
