Ex-Newcastle midfielder Dyer set for coaching career

Former Newcastle United and England midfielder Kieron Dyer is planning for a coaching career.

Dyer turned down lucrative moves to America and Dubai to concentrate on his new ambition and spent more time with his children.

The 34-year-old said, as reported on twtd.co.uk, an independent Ipswich Town website: "I'm done now, I'm content and that's it. I don't want to move away any more, I just want to spend quality time with my kids.

"Since I went up to Newcastle, I've been all over the country and I haven't really had too much quality time with my kids and now I feel that it's the perfect time."

His mentor Bryan Klug, the head of Ipswich's Academy, said that Dyer wanted to copy the style of former Barcelona and current Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola.

Dyer said: "That's true! I want to have a cool suit on exactly like him and just look cool like him on the touchline."
