Former Ghana international Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu is interested in becoming a scout for his former club, Udinese Calcio.
The experienced midfielder was on the books of the Italian Serie A side for 10 years between 2010 and 2020.
Agyemang-Badu played 193 matches across all competitions, scoring 10 times and making 11 assists for Udinese.
The former Asante Kotoko star, who is now a free agent after leaving Serie A side Hellas Verona, would also consider becoming a coach.
“Coaching is an option but I would love to be a scout for a club,” Agyemang-Badu said on Ghana Web.
“If I can be a scout for [former side] Udinese [on whose books he was from 2010 until last year] in Africa, it will be very wonderful.
“I have a good relationship with Udinese so I can speak to them and see how it goes. I know a lot of coaches in a lot of clubs,” he added.
“Coaching is my second option. I am not ready to be a CEO of a club because I don’t have experience at that level.”
Agyemang-Badu, who has also played for Turkish side Bursaspor and Spanish club Recreativo, announced his retirement from international football with Ghana last week.
The 30-year-old played 78 international matches for Ghana and netted 11 goals in the process.
