Nicolas Anelka has ruled out ever becoming a manager - because he could not deal with the kind of player he used to be.
The Chelsea striker admits he would not have reacted well as a 20-year-old to manager Carlo Ancelotti's current rotation policy, something the older and wiser Anelka has accepted as the status quo at Stamford Bridge.
He told his club's official website: "It is frustrating when you are 20 years old - when you are 32, not anymore. Sometimes you are not happy because you want to play, but you have to understand it's part of the game and we have big players.
"You have to make everybody else happy also, and like I said, if you are 20, you don't understand this rotation. But if you are 32, I won't say you have nothing to prove, but you have the experience to understand.
"When you're a manager it is even more difficult than playing because you have to keep everybody happy and make choices. I know I won't be a manager, I don't want to do it - never!"
