Agyemang-Badu at Joy FM studio

Former Black Stars midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu says he is considering scouting and coaching options after fully hanging up his boots.

Agyemang-Badu, 30, is currently a free agent after cordially terminating his contract with Italian side Hellas Verona in 2020.

He also officially retired from international football on Thursday after serving the Black Stars for over 10 years.

He revealed his post-retirement intentions in an interview with Nathaniel Attoh on the Joy Sports Link.

“For now I haven’t made a decision [on which part of football I will operate in after retirement]. Coaching is an option but I would love to be a scout for a club. If I can be a scout for Udinese in Africa, it will be very wonderful,” he said.

“I have a good relationship with the Udinese so I can speak to them and see how it goes. I know a lot of coaches in a lot of clubs. Coaching is my second option. I am not ready to be a CEO of a club because I don’t have experience in that level,” he added.

He spent nine years at Udinese before joining Hellas Verona in the summer of 2019.
