"Of course, the biggest team if I can manage Manchester United, I will be happy.
"I can leave now just some words so if people see this, if I’m a manager in the future, the fans can make some pressure to bring me as a coach!
"But I think I would like to be a coach in the future. I’m not sure but for what I feel for football, for the feeling I have, I think I have to continue to be inside of football because my whole life is about this.
"So I think, in the future, it needs to be with football too."
Current Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided a blueprint for ex-players who go on to become the manager of the club.
