Former Barcelona boss Rijkaard retires from coaching

Former Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard is stepping away from management.

Rijkaard says he doesn't see himself in another coaching job.

He told Voetbal International: "As things stand, I will not work again as a coach. I have no intention of coaching at 60 years of age.

"I am grateful for everything I've got, but I prefer to do other things."

Rijkaard, 51, said he was not going to leave football: "I want to see football games and chat but will not continue on the field under pressure."
