Inter forward Romelu Lukaku has revealed his desire to be a coach at some point, while also naming where he would love to finish his career.

Lukaku would like to remain in professional football until the age of 36 and has also revealed his desire to be a coach someday.

With football currently suspended, the big Belgian has been vocal lately, partaking in a number of Q and A sessions recently.

The latest is one where he shared his future plans.

Lukaku took to a Q and A with Kar Kerkhofs on Instagram, a Belgian presenter who is also Dries Mertens’ wife.

Being 26 at the moment, the Inter Milan man revealed he would love to play football for another decade and finish his career at boyhood club Anderlecht.

“The future of the Belgium squad depends on what happens after the Euros. My choice will be based on that too, as I’ll be 28-29 years old then. I’ve been playing professional football since I was 16 and would like to play on until 36.

“My dream is to finish my career at Anderlecht, so I’ll double back and end where it all started, having been a professional for 20 years.” Lukaku said as quoted by Football-Italia.

Lukaku also spoke of his pans after retirement, adding that he would never consider punditry duty.

“I’d like to travel and leave it all behind for a while. I’ll never be a TV pundit, but I am studying right now. Who knows, perhaps I could become a coach.”
