San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili is back in his home country of Argentina for the Olympic qualifier in Mar del Plata.
At a press conference (via infobae.com) Ginobili said he does not want to become a coach after he retires from basketball, wouldn't want to deal with office hours as a scout, and looks to spend time with his children:
"Manu" afirmó que luego del retiro no piensa en ser entrenador y contó sus planes: "No me veo como entrenador ni como asistente. El tema de ser dirigente o scout me puede interesar un poco más. No sé si estoy dispuesto a vivir allá y tener un horario de oficina. No está en mis planes. Lo que fue mi carrera, de tener un privilegio de tener una seguridad económica, no me hace pensar en viajar a Lituania u otro país a ver jugadores. Quiero disfrutar de mis hijos", finalizó.
