Former Coventry City defender Arjan De Zeeuw is now a Police Detective in Training in his native Holland.

Brought to the Sky Blues by Iain Dowie, the former Wigan player spent most of the season playing for City Reserves before retiring at the age of the 38 and joining the Dutch Police Force where he has become a Detetctive.

"It was never my intention to put my feet up after playing - I like to use my brain a little bit," De Zeeuw said in an interview with BBC Sport ahead of Wigan's FA Cup Semi-Final with Millwall on Saturday.

 "I thought about a career in medicine but when I discovered it would take eight years before I could practise, I turned my attention elsewhere.

 "I'm what is known as a detective in training. I'm involved in cases now and I should be fully qualified by the end of the summer. Eventually I want to specialise in forensics. 

 "You've probably got an idea of me being some kind of Inspector Van der Valk  character, but this kind of work really appeals to me."
