Former Real Madrid and Juventus defender Fabio Cannavaro admits he's not missing football since his retirement.

The 2006 World Cup winner hung up his boots this summer and is now working as a director with his last club, Dubai outfit Al-Ahli.

“In all honesty, it’s not so bad being retired,” he told the Corriere dello Sport. “I don’t really miss playing football, perhaps because in one way or another I am still in this sporting world.

“After 20 years at the top level and over 800 games, the time had come to put a full stop to my career. There are no regrets, but rather pride and satisfaction.”
