Fabrizio Ravanelli says he is interested in taking over at Dundee after Paul Hartley’s sacking on Monday.
Hartley was dismissed following Dundee's 2-0 defeat to Hamilton on Saturday, their seventh successive loss, which leaves them 11th in the Scottish Premiership table and five points above Inverness but Ravanelli, who had a brief spell at Dens Park in 2003, says he is keen on the vacancy.
The former Juventus, Middlesbrough and Italy striker started his coaching career with the Juve youth side before taking over at AC Ajaccio but he was sacked by the French team after just five months in charge. However, he insists he is the man to keep the Dark Blues in the top flight.
He told The Sun: "I believe I can keep Dundee in the Premiership and I am very interested in this job. I can save the club from relegation. I could definitely get results and get the best out of the Dundee players.
"I am ready to get a flight to Scotland very quickly. It is an exciting opportunity and I would love to go back. I am looking for a new project in management and this would be the perfect fresh start for me. I would bring energy, enthusiasm and motivation to the club.
"Dundee are in danger but there are five games to play and I am 100 per cent confident that the team can survive.
"I was only at Dundee for a short period of time but it's a special club and I love the passion of Scottish football. It is a fantastic country. I have played football in Britain and it would be an honour to manage there too."
