Brisbane skipper Moore hints he is keen to coach

Brisbane Roar captain Craig Moore has given the clearest indication he may be involved in coaching when his playing career is finished.

The 34-year old Australian international defender knows the time will come when he will not be able to take the pitch on a regular basis and when that time does come, he is keen to get into the coaching side of things.

Currently, Moore is on a season-by-season contract and is preparing for life after playing which involves getting his coaching licence.

"I'm not a young boy so you're not talking two or three-year contracts," he said.

"I play every season and if I feel good at the end of the season, then I'd love to go again.

"The way I'm feeling now, I don't see any reason why I can't continue for another two, three, four seasons.

"As far as (coaching) badges, you need to get that because whether you do decide to do that in the future or not, you're better off having them," he added.

"There may be a course for my B (coaching) licence that I might to do in July."

Moore is set to return from suspension to lead the Roar into their season-defining clash with the Newcastle Jets on Friday night.
