Gold Coast skipper Gary Ablett has downplayed speculation that he will seek a return to Geelong when his lucrative Suns contract expires at the end of 2015.

Cats fans - and some former teammates - hold out hope that the brilliant midfielder will pull on the blue and white hoops again before his stellar AFL career ends.

"It's hard to say because I don't know where I'll be," Ablett told Open Mike on FOX FOOTY.

"I'm loving it at the Gold Coast at the moment and I really want to win a premiership up there."

Ablett, 28, was relaxed and refreshing in his 30-minute chat with Mike Sheahan.

He went into detail about his father's career - and battle with depression - and said he gave up footy as a teenager due to the pressure of carrying the famous Ablett name.

Ablett confirmed reports that after the 2006 season senior Geelong players, led by Cameron Ling, sat the Brownlow medallist down and had a frank discussion about his lack of training intensity.

He admitted "it was hard to take", but reflected on the moment as a turning point.

"When I first got to the club I just used to go through the motions a bit," he said.

"I didn't realise how hard you had to train to make it. I thought I was going to make it off the talent I had and I kind of went along like that for three or four years."

The Cats' leaders told Ablett: "Look mate, you're not training hard enough, you're not working hard enough, it's just not acceptable."

One year later Ablett led the Cats to a drought-breaking flag, won his first of four AFLPA MVP awards, and the first of four club best-and-fairests.

In the interview, Ablett also:

-Admitted he was homesick for his first year at the Gold Coast, but adamant he made the right decision to walk away from Geelong.

-Tried to talk brother Nathan Ablett out of quitting Geelong.

-Rated his father as the best to ever play the game.

-Revealed he had enjoyed a laugh with Mark Thompson since their feud in 2010.
