Strachan keen on return to management

Gordon Strachan is hopeful of making a return to football, but will not be too concerned if no favourable opportunities arise. The Scotsman has been away from the game since he left Championship side Middlesbrough by mutual consent in 2010.

Strachan has been working with ITV Sport as part of their FA Cup coverage, but reveals that he believes he has the qualities to make players and teams better in the world of football. The Scotsman had a good record with Scottish side Celtic, winning three SPL titles, and was also FA Cup runner-up with Southampton in 2003 as manager. The 55 year old still enjoys what he is doing on television and within the social side of sport, but insists the call of management is still strong.

“I still think I have a lot to give the game. I still think I can make players better and I can make football teams better. Of course I want to coach again with good players and people who have drive, but if it never happened again, I would be fine. I speak to players every day that I have worked with, who are asking for advice or saying how are you doing, so through coaching, I have met a lot of great people”, the former Scottish international said.

Strachan also believes that managers have to accept a “yob culture” within the media and Britain, so that they can get successful ventures from their clubs. The Scotsman believes that the best way to deal with the criticism is to shut themselves away from the media and deal with the pressure of winning games rather than pressure from the fans and the media.
