The British born footballer recently ruled out out of lighting the Olympic torch at the opening ceremony, after he failed to secure a place on the GB football team.
He told Sky Sports News: 'I've always said lighting the torch in the stadium is something that should be done by an Olympian… who has done incredible things for our country and won gold medals.
'I'm sure whoever decides that, it will be an Olympian, but we'll have to wait and see.'
