The 34-year-old has now won the prize three times during the course of his career

Travis Kelce has made it clear has no plans to retire from the NFL after the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl on Sunday night.

Andy Reid's side won 25-22 against the San Francisco 49ers to secure the trophy for the fourth time in the club's history.

It was yet another magical night for Kelce, with the 34-year-old securing glory in front of pop star girlfriend Taylor Swift.

The pair embraced at full time, with Swift delighted at her boyfriend's achievement.

Kelce, at the age of 34, is now approaching the twilight years of his career in the sport.

But the NFL star has no plans to quit just yet and wants his side to try and win the trophy for the third year in a row in 2025.

"The goal's always been to get three," he said.

“But we couldn’t get here without getting to two. And having that target on our back all year.

"And I love these guys right here. The men that we just won this thing with … family forever, baby.

"I can’t be more proud of you guys. And how ’bout it? We get a chance to do it three times in a row!”

Though the Chiefs won the Super Bowl, Kelce cut a frustrated figure throughout the contest at times.

And he sparked a backlash on social media by screaming in the face of coach Reid.

Kelce did praise Reid after the match, however, expressing a belief that the 65-year-old is the best coach in NFL history.

"He's unbelievable," said the veteran.

"And not only dialling up plays and having everybody prepared.

"He’s one of the best leaders of men that I’ve ever seen in my life.

"He’s helped me a lot with that... with channelling that emotion, with channelling that passion.

“I owe my entire career to that guy — and being able to control how emotional I get.

“I just love him, man.”

There has been talk of Reid potentially quitting NFL after guiding the Chiefs to another Super Bowl win.

But a source has told CBS Sports that won't be happening - though Reid is after a better payday.

"He's not retiring," he said.

"He's not paid what he should be getting paid. Problem with the whole organization.

"Pay has not been what it should be all the way top to bottom."

Another insider added: "The thought of Andy retiring is discussed often internally. With [Nick] Saban [retiring] and [Bill] Belichick it's natural to think about.

"He hasn't expressed that to anyone. Not on the radar."
