I'm still going to enjoy my life off the pitch and I don't think that has interfered with my life on it. In still playing, my body does not allow me to do some of the stuff I did before. The reality is I can't do the two. But I will still go out for a meal and a glass of wine and smoke a cigarette if I feel like it.

The situation is one where Dwight spoke to Warner and he spoke to me and a decision was then agreed upon. Warner made it clear that they would like me to contribute and for the cause at the moment, for Dwight, for Jack Warner and the country, I am willing to do whatever I can.

I've spoken to Dwight about coming over and I think he's quite keen on it. His season in Australia finishes in February and he will need a team to stay in shape for the World Cup. It's the biggest tournament in the world so there's no way he won't be in top condition for it. To be that, he needs games, so I think it would be perfect for him to come here.
