Dembele will leave the game behind once he retires


Mousa Dembele says there is “no chance” of him pursuing a career in football when he hangs up his boots.

Our Belgium international has been an integral part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans at Spurs, making 23 Premier League appearances already this season and even though he has a number of years at the top level ahead of him,when he does finish playing, he has no intention of remaining in the game.

“No chance. You won’t see me back in football anytime soon,”: Dembele told Sport/Foot. “I’m not excluding it 100 percent, but even at 18 I was already saying that I wouldn’t stay in the business when my career ended. I still say it.

He added: “Not as manager, not on television or in any other role. But you never know. Maybe I’ll change my mind in three to four years’ time.”

Back in December, builders working on a hotel purchased by Dembele found £1m worth of valuables at the site in Antwerp. Maybe he’ll be a hotelier or a treasure hunter?
