Steven Davis: Ex-Northern Ireland captain to discuss coaching future after June friendlies

Written by on June 6, 2024

For now, after almost two decades a professional player, Davis is embracing retirement as he waits for the right coaching opportunity.

“I’m enjoying myself at the minute since retiring, getting the opportunity to do some things I haven’t always had the opportunity to do, spend some time with the family, do a bit of travelling and doing my badges,” he added.

“[Full-time coaching]it’s certainly something that down the line I would like to do.

“I have to wait and see what opportunities arise and when’s the right time to take it.”

Davis has enjoyed dipping his toe in the water with Northern Ireland and believes Saturday’s game against Spain will be a “fantastic experience” for the squad’s young players.

“It [coaching rather than playing] is certainly a different viewpoint, but it’s an experience that I’ve been enjoying,” he said.

“We’ve quite a young squad, so for them to get the opportunity to go and play against Spain away, with the quality they’ve got, you want to be testing yourself against the best players in the world and they definitely come into that category.

“It’ll be a fantastic experience for them and one everyone is looking forward to.”
