Former Essendon skipper Jobe Watson has denied that his meeting yesterday with Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley had anything to do with a potential role at the club.
The meeting, which was revealed last night on Seven News, was simply a chat about life after football in general according to the ex-midfielder.
“I wanted to catch up with Bucks and talk a little bit about retirement and things like that,” Watson told SEN Breakfast.
“It was more a chat about life in general than anything specific.”
Buckley had previously met former Western Bulldog Matthew Boyd in similar circumstances before he was announced as a Magpies development coach.
