The Blackpool manager, who was capped 53 times by England, believes The FA’s coaching pathway is the ideal way for the game's greats to extend their glittering careers.
Ince is studying for his UEFA Pro Licence with the FA at St George's Park and believes former internationals such as Rio Ferdinand should utilise the knowledge they have gained from working with great players and managers and give back to coaching.
“We don’t want players to come out of the game, who have worked with so many fantastic managers and say 'just leave it now'," said Ince.
"We want to try and get them into coaching. To see Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville here is good for the English Pro Licence.
“This is what we’ve got to do more of in the future. We’ve got a lot of players who are coming to the end of their careers, the likes of Rio [Ferdinand] and people like that.
"We want to try and get them back into coaching. We want to get them on to the Pro Licence and to be managers.”
The former Manchester United, Liverpool and Inter Milan midfielder pointed towards the European trend of integrating former players into International and club youth set-ups.
“When you look at a lot of foreign countries there are players who have come out of the game and gone straight into [coaching] the U16s and U17s.
Ince added: "I think Christian Ziege is doing the U18s in Germany and I think Steffen Freund was doing the U17s before he went to Tottenham. This is something we might have to look at."
