Former Leicester City and Celtic manager Martin O'Neil has said he would have taken the England job if it had been offered and says that he is ready to get back into football management again. What where the FA thinking not going for him?
Seriously, who would you have chosen, Martin O'Neil or Steve McLaren? Exactly!
He told Five Live Sport: 'It is one of the great jobs in football. Had it been offered, then I would have been absolutely foolish to turn it down. But I didn't get the job. I have no recriminations and it's over.'
The bit that is interesting is he backs up what some of the press have been saying for a while, he does want to get back into football.
Oh for goodness sake, won't someone please come and take Villa over, get rid of David O'Dreary and bring us a potential legend to Villa Park!
Martin O'Neil left Celtic in May 2005 due to personal circumstances, needing more time to look after his sick wife.
On his personal situation he said: 'I think my wife would want me to get back to football because I'm an absolute nuisance around the place at the moment. It's something I would dearly love to get back into because I've missed it.'
Something tells me it won't be long before a club with ambition snaps him up. Shame we aren't that club.
'I've tended to go to football matches for enjoyment's sake. I've now gone past that and I want to get back into the unenjoyable part of it. It's such a fantastic game that even to be on the periphiphery is nearly enough.'
