Bournemouth striker Defoe ponders management career

Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe admits working in management is an option being considered.

Defoe's former England team-mates Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard have both taken the plunge into management and are embarking on their first seasons with Rangers and Derby, respectively.

Defoe told the Daily Echo: “I spoke to the manager and he said it was stressful!

“Some days, you might have six or seven players knocking on your door saying 'why am I not playing?'

"It's tough and it's something I would probably have to sit and think about. I am going to do my badges and we will see what happens.

“Stevie and Frank have gone into it and I hope they do well but it's not an easy one."
