Troubled former AFL great Ben Cousins has spoken out about his hope for a future coaching role with a footy club.

Last month Cousins weas fined $500 for possession of methamphetamine when he flew into Esperance to return to a drug rehabilitation facility.

He was also fined $300 for possession of cannibas and a smoking utensil.

Cousins told Seven News that he still loved football and missed being involved in the game. Cousins also said that a future in coaching appealed to him.

Give his history, should Ben Cousins be allowed to take up a coaching position should it be offered to him?
