In 2014, Robert Pires made a return to playing football when he signed with Indian Super League side FC Goa as their marquee player for their newly created league.

In an interview in July 2015 Pires stated that he hadn’t officially retired and could make a return to the Indian Super League.

He did however officially announce his retirement from playing professionally in February 2016 at the age of 42 stating that his “last football experience was in India“.

In 2016, Pires worked as a pundit for beIN France’s coverage of Euro 2016 forming a hugely entertaining allegiance with fellow pundits Marcel Desailly and Arsene Wenger.

Pires and fellow ex France international Marcel Desailly also work closely with Swiss watch manufacturers Tag Heuer as brand ambassadors.

He is also a brand ambassador for online betting company bwin.

In July 2017 Robert Pires represented France in Star Sixes, asix-a-side indoor international tournament at the O2 in London featuring some of the world’s most iconic footballers.

Pires led his French team to victory in the tournament, beating Denmark 2-1 in the final.
