Steve Bruce plans to take a short time away from football, but he will not retire from management, Sky Sports News has been told.
Bruce was sacked by Aston Villa on Wednesday after two years in the job, and following one win in 10 matches.
The 57-year-old is said to be disappointed by the way things ended at Villa, which saw a cabbage thrown in his direction before their 3-3 draw at home to Preston.
But, after winning four promotions to the top flight, he is keen to prove he can still match those standards with a new club in the future.
Villa have begun the search for Bruce's replacement and hope to have named a new manager before the end of the international break.
Dwight Yorke and Mick McCarthy have both expressed their interest in the job, but David Moyes is currently the bookmakers' favourite.
Kevin MacDonald, formerly the head of the academy, will take caretaker charge for the trip to Millwall on Saturday but wants to return to his usual role once a new manager is brought in.
