LANCE Franklin's manager has hosed down speculation that he will retire as the superstar Swan returned to the club for his 2015 season review.
It was Franklin's first public outing since he stepped away from the game the week before this year's finals series to seek treatment for an ongoing mental health issue.
Franklin was escorted to the Swans' headquarters at the SCG by his fiancé Jesinta Campbell.
"No, Lance is not retiring," agent Sharyn Finnegan told News Limited.
The three-time Coleman medallist looked in good spirits after sitting down with coach John Longmire, who told News Limited that the short catch up was the last of his post-season meetings.
The rest of the playing group met with Longmire in the days following their disappointing finals loss to North Melbourne.
"Obviously we spoke about the challenges he had at the end of last season," Longmire said.
"He'll continue to receive support from professionals that know how to deal with it better than I do and they're indicating he will be back for pre-season training and that his support will be ongoing.
"He was pleased to be back at the footy club, he's been through a challenging time but he feels good and looks healthy.
"Primarily he's looking forward to getting back into training."
Most of the Swans' younger players will get back into training for the 2016 season in late November, but the club is hopeful that Franklin will return with the other experienced players on December 3.
