Evra was asked about the prospect in a Q&A with Chinese fans.
He said: "It's not easy but a lot of people say I could coach when I retire because I'm close to the players and I've been captain many times.
"But I think it's a difficult job because you have to win and to make everyone happy - and it's not easy to keep 23 players happy! Sometimes you don't play and the manager has a difficult choice. But we'll see - at the moment, I'm playing and enjoying it, but it's a good option for the future."
