Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin says he's stopped dreaming about coaching one of Italy's big clubs. “I'd rather manage Nottingham Forest,” he said.
Guidolin's Udinese are one of the most in-form and entertaining sides in the Italian championship at present. Sunday's 3-1 win over Italian, European and World champions Inter illustrated as much.
The club's exploits in Serie A this season, after beginning the campaign with four straight losses, has again seen the former Palermo Coach's stock rise.
But he's stopped dreaming about taking over at a giant such as Milan, Inter or Juventus.
“The best directors don't always end up in Hollywood,” he noted. “Ten years ago I did hope of joining a big side, but now I am not bothered. I want to end my career at Udinese.
“If the club get tired of me then I'll look to have an experience abroad,” continued the ex-Monaco tactician.
“I love German and English football. I love Berlin and I'd love to take charge of Hertha Berlin.
“If Hertha don't want me then I'll wait for a call from Nottingham Forest, another niche club, because at heart I am a niche Coach.”
