Fabio Capello has revealed that he would be interested in taking charge of an English club as he looks to get back into management for the final two years of his career.
Capello has been out of work since resigning as England manager in February following the Football Association's decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.
He is now keen to return to the dugout but has ruled out another national team job, while he insists it would have to be a very exciting challenge for him to go back to an Italian club.
Capello has quashed reports linking him with former club AC Milan and admitted his favoured option would be to try his luck in the Premier League.
Having spent four years as England boss he is familiar with life and football in the country, and hopes to be given an opportunity.
"I've read the stories about me joining Milan, but none of it is true. I haven't had any contact with them," Capello told Sky Sport Italia.
"I have great respect for Milan and for everything I did with them, but that's it. I was at San Siro to accompany my grandchildren. They are Milan fans and they had never been to San Siro.
"I want to be a coach for the next two years, but not for a national team. It has to be a club. I would like to work abroad as a coach. I will only work in Italy if there is an interesting project for me."
"I love London. I prefer to coach in the Premier League."
Capello maintains that he has no plans to take up a job as a technical director with a club as he wants to be more hands-on following his time with England.
"Role as director? No, I'm not interested," said Capello. "I only see these stories in the Italian newspapers.
"I was a director for four years, when I managed England. I want to work on the pitch."
