Guidolin: 'I'm a niche Coach'

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.”
