The Irishman’s last spell in management came with United Arab Emirates side Al-Ahli Dubai, but was sacked 10 months into his reign on 22nd April 2011 and has been out of the game since. O’Leary helped Leeds into the Champions League during his time and he is ready to make his way back into the game, should the right offer fall in front of his feet.
O’Leary said: ‘I would go back into management this afternoon if I got the right job. You tend to get jobs at the moment which do not have much purpose in them. I hope to get offered a good job. If I could go abroad again somewhere, and it was the right opportunity, I would love to do it.
‘It was nice to go and experience a different culture and a different type of football (in Dubai). So I’m up for any challenge if it’s the right challenge’, O’Leary added.
