Peter Crouch has revealed he'd like to follow in his wife Abbey Clancy's footsteps and appear on 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Peter Crouch wants to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 33-year-old footballer is keen to follow in the footsteps of his wife Abbey Clancy - who won the BBC one show last year - by swapping the football pitch for the ballroom when he hangs up his boots, and admits he might even bring back his retired 'Robot' dance move should he sign up for the programme.

Writing in his column for the latest issue of Loaded magazine, he said: "There's always 'Strictly Come Dancing' - my Abbey won it last year.

"Plenty of sports stars have ended up doing well on the show since retiring and my robot dance moves have got me a bit of a reputation in the dancing world, so it's definitely an option."

As well as putting his moves to the test, the former England international is also considering a potential career in punditry or as a football manager.

He added: "One thing I really want to do is get my coaching badges so I can carry on working in football - potentially as a manger.

"That is something I could never rule out because I'd love to do it.

"Television is also something I've got my eye on. Becoming a pundit seems to be in the in-thing to do, with the likes of Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville pitching up on our screens together."

The new issue of Loaded magazine is out now.
