Ex-Man City fullback Clichy: I still have 3 years at the top

Former Manchester City and Arsenal defender Gael Clichy has no thoughts of retirement.

Now 35, Clichy is a free agent after coming off contract at Istanbul BB. He is currently training with Thonon Evian GG.

"I know I have two or three more great years to do at some level. I would like to stay in the world of football after my career. I would have a lot to learn in this future," he told RMC.

“I'm still looking for a club and I also have this desire to give back to football what it has given me. And for once, it's very very good here. There are quite a few young people in this group. I've been here for two weeks and we're moving forward day after day. I have a few leads and I think it will settle. I am in discussion with clubs where it is the long-term project that will interest me."
