Slaven Bilic has admitted that he would be interested in the possibility of joining a club side after Euro 2012.
Bilic is currently in charge of the Croatia national team, who he hopes to lead to next summer’s European Championship finals.
Bilic will have spent six years at the helm of his homeland by the end of Euro 2012, and he feels it may be time for a fresh start.
“My ambition is to manage a team on a daily basis,” Bilic told L’Equipe.
“I took the Croatia job in 2006. I love my players, but six years is a long time. Coaching a national side is a huge responsibility.”
Asked where he thought he might end up, Bilic added: “Coaching in France? Why not.
“Unlike in England and Spain where the same sides are always at the top, the ones that make the best decisions do well in France. Look at Lille and Montpellier.
“The problem is I can understand French, but I don’t speak it very well. I could always learn.
“England and Germany would probably be better for me because I already know the language.”
