He told New York Times: "I have a little backyard, open the doors, sit out there and have breakfast or just let the sunlight and the warmth come in."

He said: "I like the Upper West Side, because, being a father, I like the family feel to it. You see mothers with strollers, people walking their dogs. One thing I love about the neighbourhood, when you go into places, it's not like, 'Michael!' I'm another person who's just there."

Having previously lived in Brentwood, LA, the former footballer was used to having a lot of space but has found the perfect solution when it comes to storing all his vehicles and memorabilia.

He told NYT: "I have a warehouse in Hackensack, NJ, where I keep my cars, and it's the only place where I store memorabilia. "I don't like having that stuff in the house. Feels like I'm living in the past, when you've got to keep moving forward."
