John O’Shea says that he will be looking at coaching opportunities now that he has retired from professional football.

The 38-year-old former Reading centre back played his last match on Sunday making a cameo against Birmingham.

"I’ll get a holiday in and then there will be coaching opportunities that should pop up. I’d like to think I can get into that side of things, let’s wait and see," O’Shea told RTÉ Sport.

O’Shea was speaking at Ireland’s game against the Czech Republic in the European U-17 championships.
