Seamus Coleman Has A Clear 'Dream' In Mind For When He Retires

Seamus Coleman Has A Clear 'Dream' In Mind For When He Retires

Yesterday saw the news that Seamus Coleman will be spending at least one more season with Everton, after signing a 12 month contract extension with the Merseyside club.

The 34-year-old from Killybegs missed the end of last season after picking up a nasty injury against Leicester, which saw him taken off on a stretcher, but remains a crucial player and voice within the organisation.

Next season will be his 15th season at the club, after signing from Sligo Rovers back in 2009, and he will be eager to spend a full season under Sean Dyche, and hopefully restore pride to a team that has struggled immensely in recent years.

In terms of life after football, in an interview with The Daily Mail, Coleman gave an insight into his plans when he decides to retire:

If you had asked me five years ago, what life would be like at 40, I'd have said 'disappear back to Killybegs, playing Gaelic football; enjoying life with my family – and you'll never see or hear from me again'.

But me and my family are very happy over here – and I love football.
I don't want to be a coach. I want to be a manager. That's something I definitely want to do. Here? Aye. In life you have got to have dreams and you have got to say things out loud. If it can happen, why not?

“Everyone knows how much Everton means to me, which is why it is special to sign this new contract and continue to play for this great club,” Coleman said in a statement on Everton's website after his contract extension.


“From the moment I joined more than 14 years ago, the support my family and I have had from our fans and everyone around the club has been amazing and I never take for granted just how fortunate I am to represent Everton. That has included the honour of wearing the captain’s armband in recent years.

“I’m keen to continue helping my teammates in any way I can, while passing on my experience to the younger lads and contributing on the pitch as much as possible.

“We know the past couple of seasons have not been good enough for Everton Football Club. But I can assure our fans that I’ll continue to give everything to put that right and, under the manager and his staff, our players will know what is expected of them for the season ahead.”
